Yellow Dust

Shonie De La Rosa

06:35 minutes, colour, English


Yellow Dust is comprised of nuclear weapons test footage from the U.S. Department of Energy and still photography of abandon uranium mines and uranium tailing sites on the Navajo Nation. The film and photography are choreographed to the haunting music of DJ Zen’s Paradise Bird Theory. The message of the film is obvious to most viewers, uranium is evil. Although Yellow Dust has been in the film festival circuit for many years, it continues to be the most requested and most screened film I have ever made. It has screened all over the world and has always ignited conversations of uranium, nuclear weapons and what is morally right in this world of ours. �
