Ivy Meeropol discussed her film 'Indian Point' at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Indian Point Energy Center, an aging nuclear power plant in Buchanan, New York, looms just 45 miles north of Midtown Manhattan. Despite millions of people living in close proximity to a potential nuclear disaster, the facility’s continued operation has the support of the plant’s operators and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission—but a large opposition in the surrounding community, including a vocal anti-nuclear group alarmed by Japan’s Fukushima accident, worry about a catastrophe occurring in the U.S. Capturing the debates for clean energy and the dangerous risks of government complacency, congressional-speechwriter-turned-filmmaker Ivy Meeropol presents a revelatory film about the uncertainties of our nuclear future and our insatiable demands for energy. A First Run Features release.
