Saul Landau Film Series: Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang, Wednesday 6pm

This Landau film for the month of August exposes the government’s suppression of the health hazards of low-level radiation.

Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang is a poignant and potent political documentary that exposes the government’s suppression of the health hazards of low-level radiation. Paul Jacobs is himself a victim of lung cancer, that would kill him before this picture was finished and which his doctors believe he contracted while he was investigating nuclear policies in 1957. He interviews civilians and soldiers, survivors of nuclear experiments in the 50s and 60s, testing the effects of radiation. By the time this film was made, a lot of them had died from the radiation. Color. 60 minutes.
