The Atomic States of America to Play in Harrisburg

The directors of a documentary that garnered rave reviews at last year’s Sundance Film Festival will bring their film to Harrisburg’s Midtown Cinema to benefit Three Mile Island Alert (TMIA) on at 6PM on Wednesday, March 27.

The Atomic States of America journeys to nuclear reactor communities around the country to provide a comprehensive exploration of the history and impact of nuclear power and to investigate the truths and myths about nuclear energy. The film introduces people who have been on the front lines of this issue for decades, including community advocates, journalists, physicists, nuclear engineers, NRC inspectors, and former government officials. Prominently featured is TMIA’s Eric Epstein, who shares insights about the industry gained over his decades of activism.

Co-directors Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce will be on hand to answer questions about the film.

The event at the Midtown Cinema starts with a wine and cheese reception at 6PM, followed by the showing of the film at 6:30, and concludes with Argott, Joyce, and Epstein fielding questions from the audience. Tickets are $10 each and available from TMIA.
