The Westchester Community Foundation will be showing “Indian Point” on Thursday, June 11 at 7:30PM at the Jacob Burns Film Center (364 Manville Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570). “Indian Point” is the 17th film in Westchester Community Foundation’s “Community Matters” series. “Community Matters” is an ongoing series dedicated to generating discussion and activism around topics that affect us locally, including health, environment, education, housing, and energy.

The film sets the tone for a controversial, powerful topic within Westchester County. “Indian Point” features interviews with activists, environmentalists, energy company executives and unprecedented access to the plant and its employees. Filmmaker, Ivy Meeropol, creates a complex portrait of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, an aging facility with more than 50 million people living in close proximity. After the film, Jacob Burns Film Center’s Brian Ackerman, will lead a panel discussion with filmmaker Ivy Meeropol; journalist Roger Witherspoon; activist Marilyn Elie, and Greg Jaczko, former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. A reception will follow in the Jane Peck Gallery. Tickets cost $10 for Jacob Burns Film Center members and $15 for nonmembers.
