High Power

02 Jul

(27 min) by Pradeep Indulkar, India

This powerful film is about the lives of workers and the community at the Tarapur nuclear power plant, which was built fifty years ago in a poor rural community. Like other nuclear power plants around the world, people in the community were displaced and provided no real compensation but they were promised good jobs.

This, like the other promises according to the people of Tarapur, turned out to be a lie. They also become the victims of diseases directly caused by radiation and other toxins brought into their community by the plant

Their community, their lives and their work turn into a nightmare they are struggling against as are communities where nuclear plants have been built.
