Heidi Hutner, an associate professor of English at Stony Brook University, directed the award-winning documentary, RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island, which recounts the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history.
A screening of the film will be held on Saturday, April 29, at 7 pm at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington. Hutner, along with the films stars and editor/producer, will participate in a Q&A.
RADIOACTIVE covers the stories of four homemakers, two lawyers who took the local community’s case all the way to the Supreme Court and a young female journalist who was caught in the radioactive crossfire. The film also breaks the story of a radical new health study (in process) that may finally expose the truth of the meltdown. For more than 40 years, the nuclear industry has done all in their power to cover up their criminal actions.
