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) DVD Features: Nagasaki Journey: A powerful film about the immediate and continuing aftermath of the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki Japan; Hidden Voices: The true story of Karen Silkwood; Interview with the Filmmakers; Filmmaker Biographies.
