A Hand Through The Smoke is a film exploring the human face of the nuclear weapons industry through inter-generational conversation. The film brings young adults to this international conversation by introducing youth activists to mentors and peacemaking experts from diverse backgrounds --- scientists, activists, policy advisors, and people displaced by testing and mining. 

Emmy award winning lighting director Edmond Deraedt spoke with KHSU's Lorna Bryant about the film and the fundraising campaign designed to assist in completing the project. They have a Facebook page for updates and info.
