A film by Ivy Meeropol
94 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2015
Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant looms just 35 miles from Times Square. With over 50 million people living in close proximity to the aging facility, its continued operation has the support of the plant's operators and the NRC - Nuclear Regulatory Commission - yet has stoked a great deal of controversy in the surrounding community, including a vocal anti-nuclear contingent concerned that what happened at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant could happen here. In the brewing fight for clean energy and the catastrophic possibilities of government complacency, director Ivy Meeropol presents a balanced argument about the issues surrounding nuclear energy and offers a startling reality check for our uncertain nuclear future.
Watch the Trailer
"In a world where unabashed advocacy documentaries are thick on the land, Ivy Meeropol's expert 'Indian Point,' an evenhanded look at the issues surrounding nuclear power, is a welcome exception." - Los Angeles Times
"Nuclear power is incredibly efficient...but highly dangerous if anything goes awry. That looming threat of danger pushes at the edges of the film, threatening rupture like a nuclear reactor. Someone needs to ask questions; here they are." - Village Voice
"A cautionary tale about a technology once seen as an abundant and non-polluting energy source, but with downsides that could make oil spills and electrical brownouts seem as minor as a fender bender." - The Daily Beast
"Rigorously balanced...disturbing." - Newsday
