Who decides the future of rural America? In Uranium Drive-In we see how the promise of jobs from a proposed uranium mill in an economically devastated mining community in Colorado brings hope for the first time in decades. But when environmentalists step in to stop the mill, pro-mill advocates are enraged. The health and environmental impacts of the mill suddenly become pit against the opportunity of work and a better life for residents. Director Susan Bereza (Bag It, SFGFF 2011) presents both sides of the issue with care and without judgement. The film captures the heart-wrenching personal stories and paints a portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue.
