January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1| 2011
A Film by Adam J. Horowitz
in English, 87′
Featuring recently declassified U.S. government documents, survivor testimony, and unseen archival footage, Nuclear Savage uncovers one of the most troubling chapters in modern American history: how Marshall islanders, considered an uncivilized culture, were enrolled as human subjects in the top-secret Project 4.1 to study the effects of nuclear fallout on human beings. Despite recent disclosures, the U.S. government continues to deny that the islanders were deliberately used as human guinea pigs. The film follows the islanders today as they continue to fight for justice and acknowledgement of what was done to them.
Adam J. Horowitz, Director/Producer, will be present. Rick Wayman of the NuclearAge Peace Foundation will discuss the Nuclear Zero lawsuit (30th). The Post-screening discussion will be led by Petuuche Gilbert from the Pueblo of Acoma in NM, President of the Indigenous World Association.
In April 2014, the Republic of the Marshall Islands filed a lawsuit against all nine nuclear weapon states. See: Nuclearzero.org
Sponsored by: Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment, Indigenous World Association, Society for Anthropological Studies, Diné No Nukes, International Indian Treaty Council, Yachay Wasi, Sloths Against Nuclear State.
