Nuclear Savage

Adam Jonas Horowitz | 2011 | 60 min.

2015 Official Selection

This controversial, award-winning documentary is at once a heartbreaking and intimate ethnographic portrait, and a true life detective story. The film reveals how U.S. scientists turned a Pacific island paradise into a radioactive hell, using Marshall Islanders as human guinea pigs for three decades to study the effects of radioactive nuclear fallout on human beings. Nuclear Savage seeks to uncover tragedy but is currently being censored by PBS which has cancelled all three of its scheduled broadcasts of the film.”
