Dark Circle was released in 1982, but is still relevant:
Recent saber-rattling by North Korea and Trump's incendiary
threats make this classic film a must-see. Winner of the
Grand Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and recipient
of a national Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in News & Documentary, Dark Circle follows the trail of plutonium from the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons facility in Colorado, to the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in California, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Plutonium, the most toxic substance in the world, links these locations and the people whose lives are irrevocably changed by it. 83 minutes, 16mm color, first released: 1983; revised: 1991; re-mastered at Fotokem in HD in 2018 with assistance from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; now distributed by First Run Features.

"Four stars ...completely riveting." —Roger Ebert
"You owe it to yourself to see this chilling documentary. A much needed warning sign
on a very dangerous road. Rated: A." —People Magazine
"Recommended" —Science Books and Films
"This is a great film. I saw it years ago on television and was very moved by it. Years later, I saw
'The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill,' by the same director (Judy Irving). Another excellent film.
It's a classic. Informative yet emotionally wrenching." —From a five-star Amazon review
