A screening of “Uranium Drive-In,” an environmental documentary that looks at the controversy over a proposed uranium-processing mill in western Montrose County, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, at the Mesa County Libraries Central Library, Fifth Street and Grand Avenue.
The full-length documentary follows the emotional debate pitting many of the people of Naturita, Colo., where the mill is largely supported for its promise of much-needed jobs, against an environmental group based in the resort community of Telluride. According to the film’s producers, both sides are presented, and the film offers no answers. Instead, it aims to capture personal stories and paint a portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue.
The screening is open to the public at no charge.
