Film “HOT WATER” Reveals Burning Truth About Uranium Mining


    ( – promoted by lowkell)

    This week, Sierra Club is hosting screenings of HOT WATER, a film portraying the harrowing stories of citizens across the country whose families have been decimated by cancer in the aftermath of uranium mining. The producers traversed the Southwest, interviewing heartbroken survivors while collecting astounding measurements of radioactivity at abandoned mining sites marked only by tiny warning plaques. Filmmaker Lizabeth Rogers was so inspired to hear of those fighting to protect their communities in Virginia that she brought her film crew here to capture a segment for a special extended edition of the documentary.

    Check out the list of HOT WATER screenings below to find one near you! Come out early to any of the screenings to see the producer and Virginia “stars” of the film walk the red carpet and host a press conference to discuss the dangerous implications of uranium mining in Virginia.

    HOT WATER Richmond – November 12, Byrd Theatre
