Canyon Theatre – Boulder Public Library

1001 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder, CO 80302

Sunday April 29th 2018, starting at 4:30 p.m.

Screening of: Dark Circle, On the Tracks, and The Half-Life of Memory

Dark Circle (World premiere of the newly re-mastered original)

“Dark Circle,” about the links between nuclear weapons and power and their impact on ordinary people, is an Oscar-shortlisted, Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning documentary that was widely distributed to theaters and television in the early ‘80s. Now, due to saber-rattling in the U.S. and North Korea and the very real threat of a nuclear exchange, the film is being re-released as a high-definition movie file, which is being offered free to relevant nonprofits and activists. Judy Irving, the producer/director/narrator of the film, is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences based in San Francisco and will be giving a talk at the screening.

On the Tracks: at Rocky Flats (short)

“On the Tracks,” is a short documentary film about the “Truth Force” protests at Rocky Flats in 1978. Thousands attended, hundreds were arrested. “On the Tracks” was directed by Erik Sween and stars Joe Daniel.

The Half-Life of memory: Rocky Flats and the Nuclear Trigger (Preview of a soon to be released feature film)

“The Half-Life of Memory,” exposes the ongoing and incredible true story of the Rocky Flats nuclear bomb factory, located just outside of Denver, Colorado. The plutonium contaminated site, once called a “death factory,” will soon open to the public – UNLESS citizens stop it. The Half-Life of Memory is directed by Jeff Gipe.
