Winner of the Grand Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and recipient of a national Emmy Award, DARK CIRCLE follows the trail of plutonium from the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons facility in Colorado, to the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in California, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.
Years after the end of the Cold War, this compassionate and persuasive film is more relevant than ever: weapons of mass destruction are being developed in the U.S., nuclear power is re-emerging, and the capability to build atomic bombs is spreading to other countries. At once a stark compilation of personal accounts and an unyielding look at the potential devastation that nuclear power can cause, DARK CIRCLE is a classic, must-see film that is a cautionary look at the path we are on.
Weaving dramatic personal accounts with formerly classified footage, and exploring the link between nuclear power and nuclear weapons, DARK CIRCLE is the most eloquent, far ranging and convincing film on the subject to date. (The Seattle Times)
