Product Notes

Offering rare archival footage and a deceptively upbeat atmosphere this Oscar-nominated film delves into the lives of a community gripped by the ultimate weapon of mass destruction-the hydrogen bomb. Pastoral Aiken South Carolina is home to the Savannah River Plant the epicenter of America's top secret atomic bomb-making apparatus. Within this nuclear company town directors Mark Mori and Susan J. Robinson unlock a treasure trove of feelings for the bomb-ambivalence resignation anger fear and celebration-while blowing open a cover-up of massive radioactive waste dumping carried out under the shroud of national security. Profiling a diverse cast of outspoken community members from a physicist-turned-peace-activist a politician who speechifies on the good jobs created by the plant and a worker whose body courses with radioactive particles BUILDING BOMBS artfully grapples with the profound realities of a world filled with nukes by listening closely to those who must live day-to-day in the shadow of the H-bomb. DVD Features: Filmmaker Interviews; PBS Censorship Controversy; Michael Stipe Speaks Out; Rare DOE/Atomic Energy Commission Films; Photo Gallery; Theatrical Trailer; Filmmaker Biographies.
