Free film screening and discussion of "Blowin' in the Wind"

Blowin' In The Wind is the latest film from two-time Academy Award nominee, David Bradbury - arguably Australia's most contentious and provocative documentary filmmaker. It examines the secret treaty that allows the US military to train and test its weaponry on Australian soil. Blowin' In The Wind reveals that Iraqi babies are now being born with major birth defects. Bradbury wonders whether Australians living downwind from the military testing ranges will be next. With a cash budget of just $12,000 Blowin' In The Wind raises pertinent questions which cannot be ignored by the public. The film shocked, angered and surprised large audiences recently when shown at the Sydney and Brisbane Film Festivals. In this film, Bradbury's concern for the environment has resulted in a deeply disturbing film about the worst kind of radioactive pollution imaginable which should set alarm bells ringing the world over.

This screening is organized by Fiat Pax (Let there be peace), a UC Berkeley student group that seeks to raise awareness of the militarization of our university, especially UC’s role as a manager of the nucleur weapons lab.
