Acclaimed documentary film "The Return of Navajo Boy" reunited a Navajo Family, triggered an investigation of uranium houses in the Navajo Nation, and helped a former uranium miner make his case for compensation. A powerful new epilogue shows how the film and Navajo participants are building a groundswell for the clean up of Cold War uranium contamination.

Film director Jeff Spitz and Navajo grandmother Ms. Elsie Mae Begay will be present for Q & A with the audience.
