“Standing Up To Misgovernment: Unsolid Ground” (12 minutes)
The residents and small business owners of a small exurban town in New York State fight an incoming commercial giant in order to preserve their way of life.

"Project Chariot" (74 minutes)
In 1958, at the height of the Cold War, the US Atomic Energy Commission planned to detonate a series of nuclear bombs, the equivalent of 160 Hiroshima blasts, next to a small Inuit village of 300 people in Alaska.

Project Chariot is the story of how the Inupiaq people of Point Hope and a handful of scientific allies stopped the most powerful government agency of its time and played a significant role in ending nuclear testing in that era.

The shocking legacy of the Project Chariot test site is still felt in Point Hope Alaska but the strength of the people endures in this powerful feature documentary from Inupiaq History Series director Rachel Naninaaq Edwardson. Check out the trailer for the awe-inspiring film at http://vimeo.com/51190766.
