The End of a Nuclear Power Plant
Jul 06, 2016
Pilgrim Nuclear Reactor in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is scheduled to close down in 2019. It won’t be alone—because of increased concerns over the safety of these plants and decreased gas prices, many will struggle to stay open in the United States. In this short film, locals who work in the plant reflect on the effects of the impending closure.
Van Alen Sessions is presented by Van Alen Institute with The Atlantic andCityLab. Season Two, “Power Lines,” is directed and produced by Kelly Loudenberg. The series is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
