The people's movement against the Koodankulam nuclear plant is an over 20-year-old
story. When the mainstream media muffles the voices from the ongoing people's struggle in
Koodankulam, Amudhan R P breaks the silence and takes us to the villages at the centre of
the resistance. Completed just before Section 144 was enforced in the area, the film
presents rare footage from the protests.
'Radiation Stories' is a series of films that Amudhan has been making since 2007 on nuclear
issues. The first part is about monazite mining by Department of Atomic Energy in
Manavalakurichi, Tamil Nadu and the second part is about various case studies of health
hazards in and around Kalpakkam due to the nuclear power complex.
Note: The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film maker.
A bit about Amudhan:
Born in 1971, Amudhan completed MA in Development Communication from Madurai
Kamaraj University. He has been involved in various documentary-related activities such as
making films, writing about documentary films and filmmakers in Tamil, and organising
film screenings, video workshops and film festivals in Tamil Nadu.
Amudhan founded Madurai International Documentary and Short Film Festival in 1998 and
has been co-ordinating the festival since then every year.
About the Kriti Film Club:
This is an educational and research oriented initiative of Kriti: a development research, praxis
and communication team, screening documentaries since the year 2000.
We offer an independently financed and informal space for screening documentary films on a
whole range of social, development, human rights & environment issues. The whole idea of the
KRITI Film Club is to place thought- provoking cinema in a discussion group that will help to
deepen understanding on these issues amongst viewers and film-makers. We also serve as a
borrowing & distribution space for documentary films from India and abroad.
You are welcome to have some chai-shai at our ecoCafe @intervals, on contribution!
