Journalists discover safety coverups at a Nuclear power plant (in California), during an earthquake. Risking their jobs & lives, by challenging censorship from their media owners & intimidation from the Nuclear power company, they attempt to expose the truth.
This 1979 suspense-drama (nominated for 4 Acadamy Awards) was released 12 days before the nuclear accident at 3 Mile Island in Pennsylvania. Like the true story of Karen Silkwood (who died on her way to meet a reporter from the NYTimes) this film stands the test of time in continuing to point out the ongoing and real dangers of Nuclear power & the Nuclear power industry.
PLUS short films, a brief intermission, and great company.
BRING your friends, your family, and your neighbors. Bring chairs, blankets, drink & food and anything you need to be comfortable (and/or share). Warm clothing is highly recommended. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project.
SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is to help reclaim public space and transform our urban environment.
