Film Screening and Discussion of “Wackersdorf [2018]”

Register for this Event  

When it comes to nuclear energy awareness, the early springtime brings remembrance of past nuclear power plant accidents that furthered international conversations concerning the safety of atomic power. From the fortunately-contained partial meltdown at Three Mile Island near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in March 1979, to the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in April 1986, to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster following a devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, now is as good a time as any to take a closer look at the ongoing effects of nuclear power on our planet.

The Goethe-Institut Washington, in partnership with the Heinrich Böll Foundation, presents a screening of “Wackersdorf (2018),” a true story of community, taking a stand against injustice and corruption, and being a local-level politician taking on a much stronger governing power. Oliver Haffner, director of the film, will be present at the screening. Following the film, Haffner and Paul Gunter of the organization Beyond Nuclear will engage in a discussion open to guests.
