Dear Bookers & Programmers:

I'm pleased to announce that the classic doc Dark Circle has been restored and will open in New York City on August 21 at the Metrograph. This vitally important look at the dangers of the Atomic Age won the Grand Prize at Sundance in 1983, and is as powerful and relevant now as it was then.

Please consider adding this wonderful documentary to your line-up in August or September! Check out the new trailer and let me know if I can send a screening link.

Opens August 21

It’s been 75 years this month since the start of the Atomic Age, with the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, but its trail of destruction has never ended.

Dark Circle covers both the period’s beginnings and its aftermath, providing a scientific primer on the catastrophic power of nuclear energy while also relating tragic human stories detailing the devastating toll radioactive toxicity has taken on people and livestock—focusing in large part on Rocky Flats, Colorado, whose plutonium processing facility infamously contaminated the surrounding area.

Documentary Grand Prize winner at Sundance, Academy shortlisted for Best Documentary, and Emmy winner, Dark Circle is no less potent today than it was 40 years ago.
"Dark Circle is one of the most horrifying films I've seen, and also sometimes one of the funniest (if you can laugh at the same things in real life that you found amusing in Dr. Strangelove). Using powers granted by the Freedom of Information Act, and sleuthing that turned up government film the government didn't even know it had, the producers of this film have created a mosaic of the Atomic Age. It is a tribute to the power of the material, and to the relentless digging of the filmmakers, that the movie is completely riveting. Four Stars!"
-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"You owe it to yourself to see this chilling documentary.
A much needed warning sign
on a very dangerous road. Rated: A."
-People Magazine
