Uranium Film Festival


The International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro is dedicated to all films (movies, documentaries, animated films, image films, art, fiction and non-fiction) about any nuclear issue: uranium mining, nuclear power plants, nuclear accidents, atomic bombs, nuclear waste, radioactive risks: From Hiroshima to Fukushima. It is an annual and global film festival with travelling festivals in other countries and cities.

The best and most important films of the year receive the festival Award or a Special Recognition. The Uranium Film Festival Award is a piece of art created by Brazilian waste-material-artist Getúlio Damado, who lives and works in the famous artist quarter Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro. Getúlio uses waste material that he finds in the streets of Santa Teresa and old, broken watches to remember the first atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima. Watches in Hiroshima stopped exactly at 8:15 in the morning when the A-bomb exploded on August 6th, 1945.

Remembering the worst radioactive accidents in cinema

INTERNATIONAL URANIUM FILM FESTIVAL - THE ATOMIC AGE CINEMA FEST IN BERLIN - OCTOBER 11 - 15, 2017
 
Victims of radioactive contamination are the main theme of the International Uranium Film
Festival 2017. „We want to remember especially Brazils worst but forgotten radioactive accident
that happened exactly 30 years ago in September 1987“, says Uranium Film Festival director
Norbert G. Suchanek. Two young scavengers found a radiation therapy device in an abandoned
cancer treatment Hospital in the city of Goiânia, capitol of the Brazilian state of Goiás. They sold
it to a scrap metal dealer who opened it. He did not know that it contained highly radioactive,
deadly Cesium-137 crystals and unwillingly contaminated his family, friends and hundreds of
others.
