About the Movie

In 2010, the United States announced the first new nuclear power plant construction in over 32 years. The "nuclear renaissance" was born, and America's long-stalled expansion of nuclear energy was infused with new life. The Atomic States of America takes the viewer on a journey to reactor communities around the country, and seeks to explore the truths and myths of nuclear power. From the gates of Three Mile Island, to the cooling ponds of Braidwood, IL, this film introduces the viewer to people who have been on the front lines of this issue for decades. Begun more than a year before the disaster in Japan, the deeply investigated documentary gains a unique before-and-after perspective, and includes interviews with Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors, community advocates, investigative journalists, renowned physicists, nuclear engineers, and former government leaders. As the nation stands at the crossroads of the nuclear renaissance, The Atomic States of America seeks to inspire an honest dialog about whether or not man can responsibly split the atom.

A shame

I thought this documentary would focus on truth and facts when it came to nuclear power. Basically, this movie is an hour and a half smear campaign about nuclear power, when the real problem was the people behind it. Waste of money....
