­Australian Atomic Confessions, by director Katherine Aigner, tells the story of 12 British a-bomb tests in Australia, seen through the eyes of Aboriginal elders, atomic ex-veterans, experts and the Premier of South Australia. Nuclear technology in Australia has a troubled and troubling legacy: Clandestine nuclear weapons development, soldiers used as guinea pigs, the poisoning of indigenous lands and people and the development of a controversial modern nuclear program. Australia is now at a crossroads, and citizens are questioning which future their country will choose.
