/High Power/, a 27-minute documentary about the health issues faced by  
residents of Tarapur, a town in Maharashtra, and home to the 50- year-old  
Tarapur nuclear power plant, recently won the Yellow Oscar in the short film  
category in the Rio de Janeiro leg of the Uranium Film Festival. 

“The government was showing a very rosy picture of Tarapur on TV, so a few  
of us thought of going there and interviewing the people...That material was  
very strong, people were talking from their heart, and instead of showing it  
on a news channel, I thought it could be made into a documentary,” says  

After the film, Indulkar will describe the passionate anti-nuclear movement  
in India and their request for support from the global anti-nuclear movement,  
particularly from those countries whose nuclear industries are building  
plants in India.

 Indulkar’s film tour in the western MA occurs at a time that the US has  
agreed to a deal in which India buys 6 nuclear power plants from Westinghouse  
– a boon for the industry that is going bust in the United States.  India  
reprocesses nuclear power waste into nuclear weapons and, thus, more nuclear  
power translates into greater weapons capability.  The US-India agreement  
will require that India accept liability in case of a nuclear accident, a  
tragic undermining of the post-Bhopal Indian law that placed liability on the  
shoulders of the industry selling the equipment.
