Demon Mineral

DEMON MINERAL documents life in the radioactive desert on the Navajo Reservation. Spanning a landscape perforated by uranium mines in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, the film follows a group of indigenous scientists, elders, and activists as they work to protect a vital living space on contaminated land.
