Star Wars Returns
This powerful documentary reveals how the United States is moving to make space a new arena of war. It presents military documents declaring the U.S. intention to "control space" and from space "dominate" the world below. It exposes U.S. development programs now underway to produce space-based laser weapons. And, it shows how the George W. Bush administration and, especially, its Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, is pushing ahead rapidly with Star Wars--that far more than "missile defense" is involved. It tells how, at the UN, because of the U.S. program for space warfare, a vote was recently held to reaffirm the Outer Space Treaty--the basic international law which sets aside space for "peaceful purposes." Some 163 nations voted yes. The U.S. abstained. Star Wars Returns explores the international opposition to Star Wars. It spotlights the strong challenge to Star Wars being made at the grassroots level worldwide by the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power In Space.  To watch, click here.

Winner of the Worldfest Silver Award, Houston International Film Festival.

Winner of the Director’s Citation, Black Maria Video and Film Festival.

Chosen for screening at the 1993 Earth Peace International Film Festival.

Three Mile Island Revisited. This powerful documentary challenges the claims of the nuclear industry and government that “no one died” as a result of the core meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility in Pennsylvania. It utilizes the testimony of area residents and scientific findings to reveal that deaths, especially from cancer and birth defects in children, have been widespread since the 1979 accident. Indeed, it notes that Three Mile Island’s owner has been quietly settling numerous damage cases brought by persons seriously impacted by the accident. Watch video here! (29 min.)

“Nukes In Space is the only full length, in-depth documentary on the disastrous implications of the renewed effort to project nuclear weapons and nuclear power into space... Richly illustrated with archival and current footage, and expounded with urgency and clarity in interviews with leading experts. The tape is the best presentation yet of the case for strengthened treaties to keep nuclear power and nuclear weapons out of space.” War & Peace Digest
