Arid Lands tells the story of the region around the Hanford Nuclear Reservnation in eastern Washington state, where plutonium was produced for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki at the end of World War II.  Today, the area is challenged by the largest environmental cleanup in history.  The film shows how very different kinds of people – radiation scientists, ecologists, sports fishermen, housing developers, tattoo artists – understand the Hanford landscape, and how it has impacted their lives.   Arid Lands has been screened at 24 film festivals, and has won eleven awards.
