Earthlife Namibia and the Goethe Centre invite you to
the film Uranium Road (2008)
Documentary by Teaching Screens Production, Producers: Jenny Hunter, Mashile Phalane & Cati Weineck (53 min)
The film rips away the veil of secrecy from both the past and the present South African nuclear programme, showing how the nuclear industry fundamentally undermines the democratic principles of the young democracy. The film combines archival footage, interviews with local and international experts and tells the story of a community on the edge of a nuclear dump in scenic Namaqualand.
The film is based on the book “Uranium Road” by Dr David Fig, an independent researcher on environmental policy matters, based in Johannesburg. He holds a PhD in international political economy from the London School of Economics.
We are pleased to announce that David will be present during the film shows and will be answering questions.
