Indian Point Screens at Burns Film Center

Q&A with Meeropol and others Thursday, June 11

The Jacob Burns Film Center will screen local filmmaker Ivy Meeropol’s 2015 documentary Indian Point at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 11.

Featuring interviews with activists, environmentalists and energy company executives and unprecedented access to the plant and its employees, Indian Point creates a complex portrait of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, an aging facility with over 50 million people living in close proximity.

There will be a Q-and-A session with Meeropol, journalist Roger Witherspoon, activist Marilyn Elie, former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Greg Jaczko and JBFC Programming Director Brian Ackerman. A reception takes place after the discussion in the Jane Peck Gallery.

Tickets are $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers). The JBFC is located at 364 Manville Road in Pleasantville. For more information, visit or call 914-747-5555.
