Just outside Grants, New Mexico, is a 200-acre heap of toxic uranium waste, known as tailings. After 30 years of failed cleanup, the waste has deeply contaminated the air and water near the former uranium capital of the world. The film is a cinematic investigation into the pile that is gravely shaping the lives of those who are stuck living in its shadow. TRAILER: http://tailingsfilm.com 

Too Precious to Mine  

USA, 2017, Director Justin Clifton, Documentary, English,10 min, Trailer: https://vimeo.com/241576331 

The Havasupai Tribe depends on the blue-green waters that emerge in the Grand Canyon for drinking water. But now, uranium mining on the canyon’s rims threatens the tribe’s existence and its way of life. A 20-year ban on new uranium mining claims around the Grand Canyon is at risk of being overturned by the Trump administration. The Grand Canyon is an irreplaceable natural treasure that draws over 5.5 million visitors to the park each year. Yet, irresponsibly operated uranium mines located on federal public land just miles from the North and South Rims threaten to permanently pollute the Grand Canyon landscape and the greater Colorado River.   „The Grand Canyon is the last place on Earth we should mine uranium.“
