Tarapur Nuclear Power Project is India’s first civil nuclear establishment came in existance around 50 years ago, displacing few villages near town named Tarapur. Once a protagonist visits those villages Dandi, Pofaran, Ghivali, Unbhat and Tarapur after 40 long years. He observes the situation of thousands of displaced people. He finds that they lost their traditional jobs and they did not get any new jobs, they lost their lands, homes and sea and they didn’t get proper compensation neither they got the promised services and infrastructures…

About the Filmmakerpradeep_photo

Dr. Pradeep Indulkar had been a nuclear engineer for 12 years at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre.
After realizing his declined health condition, he leftt the nuclear industry, and shifted to work as an environmental educator. He supports people’s movement against Kudankulam and Jaitapur. He now devotes his works to communicate with the people in anti-nukes struggle, and had won Yellow Oscar Award in 2013 Internaitonal Uranium Film Festival in Rio de Jainero with High Power. He is now working on his next film on GMO issues.

Dear friend,
I introduce myself as a nuclear activist and a film maker from India. Recently my film High Power, which was based on the sufferings of people around first nuclear power plant of India  – Tarapur Atomic Power Station received Yellow Oscar Award in International Uranium Film Festival at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Then I had a tour of Europe especially France and Germany and then USA. In these countries High Power was screened in several places as a part of anti nuclear campaign. The detail report of these tours are attached with this mail.
As I work with the people who are fighting against the biggest nuclear power plant in world (10,000 Mw) at Jaitapur on the west coast of India, these tours also proved a good platform to spread the information about anti nuclear struggle in India.
Now I am planning a tour to Japan. The film is already dubbed in English and will have Japanese subtitles. Hence I request you to arrange few screenings in Japan. Please note that this is a social activity and no commercials are attached with this tour and screenings.
Thanking you,
Pradeep Indulkar
