Cascadia Uranium Film Arts Festival @ Portland, OR - Alberta Abbey
Apr 3 – Apr 5 all-day

Please join Oregon PSR for this three-day documentary film festival organized by Oregon PSR Advisory Board member Yukiyo Kawano and activist Laura Feldman. This event seeks to create a space for people to learn about the lasting impacts of nuclear technologies, and places like Fukushima and the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, through film, art, and community dialogue.

On opening night, the event organizers will be showing film shorts followed by guest speakers Dr. Linda Richards (Oregon State University Downwinders Project) and Dr. Oliver Tapatha (The Return of Navajo Boy). Day Two will begin with a panel discussion with Trisha Pritkin (author of Hanford Plaintiffs: Voices from the Fight for Atomic Justice), Norma Field (Professor Emeritus from the University of Chicago), and filmmaker Hitomi Kamanaka, followed by Hitomi’s film Hibakusha at the End of the World. Day Three begins with the panel discussion followed by the film Little Voices from Fukushima, also by Hitomi Kamanaka.

During the event, there will be tables staffed by nuclear-free advocacy groups. Activities will also include a healing and reflection piece lead by Oregon PSR Advisory Board member Chisao Hata, along with a visual arts display by Yukiyo Kawano.

Single-day tickets are $8, and the full weekend pass is $15. Purchase tickets here.

Note: Ticket prices are suggested donation amounts to help cover the costs associated with this event, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
