On Wednesday, Nov. 27, and Thursday, Nov. 28, Albuquerque will welcome its newest film festival. The International Uranium Film Festival was founded in Rio de Janeiro’s famous artists’ quarter in 2011. The aim of the festival is to inform the public, ideally from a neutral position, about nuclear power, uranium mining, nuclear weapons and the health effects of radioactivity. After its premiere in Rio, the Fest has traveled to cities in Portugal, Germany and India. Now radiation-dosed New Mexico dwellers have an opportunity to check it out with a special screening at the Guild Cinema. The two-day fest features a wide range of filmsfrom serious documentaries about the expansion of nuclear power (The Atomic States of America) to a Russian romantic comedy shot inside real Russian nuclear power plants (Atomic Ivan). In all, 13 features, documentaries, and shorts will be screened. Several of the films’ directors will be in attendance. You can get $1 off advanced tickets at the Albuquerque Center for Peace & Justice (202 Harvard SE).
