Into Eternity

Jul 22 - Jul 28, 2011

(Michael Madsen, USA, 2009, DigiBeta, 75 min)

Seattle Premiere!

After the devastating nuclear crisis in Japan, Michael Madsen’s Into Eternity—part documentary, part science fiction—is a prescient exploration of how Finland handles its spent nuclear fuel rods. The film begs the question: Since nuclear waste is dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years, how do you communicate the danger to distant generations? 


Screens with Karn Junkinsmith’s Interpretive Site: Hanford Reach.


"Jaw-dropping! Tackles a subject almost beyond comprehension. One of the most extraordinary factual films to be shown this year.” —The Guardian

 Callie Ridolfi, P.E., will be speaking at this event. Callie advises the Yakama Nation on cleanup and restoration of the Hanford Site, where plutonium production began in 1945 and nuclear waste remains today.  She is a consulting engineer with degrees in mining and environmental engineering. Since 1990 she has served Tribal communities in environmental cleanup, waste management, environmental protection, and habitat restoration. She is a founding board member of the Washington Clean Technology Alliance and is president of RIDOLFI Inc.
