Film Screening: "Containment"

Containment, a film by Harvard Professors Peter Galison and Robb Moss, brings together observational footage with graphic novel and 3D animation to explain our uneasy present and an imaginative, troubled far future.

Imagine a society 10,000 years from now. Can we protect them from the deadliest, most long-lasting radioactive substances ever produced? Not a single country in the world has a clear plan for what to do with our radioactive waste stream. From New Mexico to Fukushima, meet the people trying to create monuments that will speak across time to protect future generations.

RSVP required. Light dinner will be served at 5:45pm. Screening, followed by Q&A, will begin at 6:15pm.

Co-sponsored by the Harvard University Center for the Environment, the Belfer Center's Project on Managing the Atom, and the HKS Energy & Environment Professional Interest Council.
