The fall F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series concludes on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m., when documentary filmmaker Robb Moss presents Containment (2015). The event takes place in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ, and is free and open to the public.
Deep beneath Carlsbad, N.M., lies the world’s only licensed, operating radioactive waste site.
Savior of the town? Bulwark against global warming? Or a nuclear gamble for 10,000 years?
Veteran documentary filmmaker Robb Moss teamed up with scientist Peter Galison, a professor of the history of science at Harvard and a MacArthur and Guggenheim fellow, to explore America’s ongoing, but increasingly invisible issue with the disposition of nuclear waste.
Moss is currently chair of Harvard’s Department of Visual and Environmental Studies. He has made landmark personal documentaries (Riverdogs, The Same River Twice) and serves annually as creative advisor for Sundance Doc/Edit labs.
