#OregonMade Doc “Downwind” Featured on OPB

OPB recently interviewed the filmmakers and featured participants of the locally produced documentary “Downwind.”

“Downwind” looks at how miscalculated wind forecasts, government proclamations that radiation exposure wasn’t a serious health threat, and revelations from now-declassified documents referring to those who lived near the test site as a “low use segment of the population” potentially contributed to illnesses suffered by Americans who were never warned about the dangers of living near the test sites. It was produced and co-directed by Portlander Mark Shapiro.

“Downwind” is currently available on streaming platforms including Amazon.
