unnamed

Summary: Yellow Fever follows young Navajo veteran Tina Garnanez on her journey to investigate the history of the Navajo Uranium Boom, its lasting impacts in her area, and the potential new mining in her region.  She begins as a curious family member and becomes an advocate, lobbyist, activist, and vocal proponent for transparency and environmental justice.  Tina travels throughout the West to learn about uranium mining and nuclear development. She examines the pros, the cons, and the hot debate over nuclear power, which forces her to consider her own opinions on the subject of energy. Is nuclear power the answer to global warming?  Are jobs more important than long-term environmental viability?  Ultimately she returns to her community to fight for justice and compensation for struggling victims of the Navajo uranium boom.  Filmmakers IronThorn.net – Austin-based.
