Potluck at 6, film at 7. Based on the astounding true story of whistle blower Karen Silkwood, the film is as much a character study of a woman galvanized by injustice as a story of the dangers of nuclear power and the extremes of corporate greed. Starring Meryl Streep and Cher and nominated for 5 Academy Awards. Plus “Hidden Voices,” an 8-minute documentary on Silkwood. After the film, author and Humanities professor Paul Rea will lead a discussion. Prof. Rea has taught courses on “Politics in the Nuclear Age.” 3rd film in our series "Planet at a Crossroads--Nuclear Power or Solartopia?"
