EVENT: Off Country – Film and Oral History Archive

October 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Off Country

Resisting Nuclear Armament in the 21st Century

Alamosa, CO – October 10th 2017 – Over the past two years Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart have
been creating a feature-length experimental documentary and multimedia oral history archive
that examines three regions in the west, the former Rocky Flats Plant, the White Sands Missile
Range and the Nevada Test Site. Their project focuses on anti-nuclear and peace activists
engaged in direct action and civil disobedience. The archive will document and catalog a diverse
chorus of voices whom history has neglected to be a tool for researchers, historians, and
activists, to learn not only about history but the human stories of people resisting
environmental contamination and political oppression.

They are inviting community members in Boulder County and the surrounding areas to learn
about the archive, share personal experiences and to participate in a dialogue about building a
multi-generational grassroots movement to resist nuclear armament in the 21st century.

Please join them on Saturday October 28th from 10am-2pm at:
The Art House of Nederland
171 E. 2nd Street
Nederland, CO 80466

Off Country investigates the environmental consequences of the nuclear weapons industry as
well as the racist and classist policies inherent in the storage, mining and production of
radioactive material. Their work was started with a small grant from CU Boulder Film Studies
and has gone on to receive support from the Puffin Foundation. They are fiscally sponsored by
Basement Films, an Albuquerque based media non-profit, and are currently raising funds to
finish their fieldwork and research.
