If you do not know why a documentary about the dangers of nuclear power is relevant today, then I recommend you do not read the rest of this suggestion and instead read the news. Michael Madsen's Into Eternity was made in 2009 and concerns the world's first permanent storage facility for nuclear waste (a massive underground system that can contain waste for 100,000 years). Of specific interest: how the dangers of nuclear waste will be communicated to generations yet to be born. Into Eternity is preceded by the lovely short film Interpretive Site: Hanford Reach, directed by Adam Sekuler and Karn Junkinsmith, photographed by Benjamin Kasulke, starring D.K. Pan, and set in Hanford, Washington's massive nuclear wasteland. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, www.nwfilmforum.org, 9 pm, $6-$9)
