A portrait of a small town built to produce weapons-grade plutonium, this stunning documentary combines archival material with present day reflections from a diverse group of residents in Richland, Washington. The town sits adjacent to the Hanford Nuclear Production site, a decommissioned facility that is now the biggest environmental cleanup site in the US and the center of which will be uninhabitable for thousands of years. In a year when Oppenheimer was the most nominated Oscar film, RICHLAND prompts a crucial conversation about the normalization of extraordinary violence and the complex legacy of the nuclear age.
