Director/Filmmaker Ivy Meeropol had unprecedented access to the plant at the center of the most contentious relicensing process the industry's history. In the brewing fight for clean energy, INDIAN POINT presents a nuanced argument about the issues surrounding nuclear energy and offers a startling reality check for our uncertain nuclear future.

This film premiered in Spring of 2015 at The Tribeca Film Festival and in 2017 it was announced that a pending deal between NY State and Entergy Corp. could see Indian Point Energy Center close by 2021.

Following the screening join Ivy Meeropol and film subjects, activist Marilyn Elie and environmental journalist Roger Witherspoon, for a Q& A and discussion of Indian Point's future.

With comments from Professor Diana Hernandez, Sociomedical Sciences.
