When you were growing up, how many people did you know who had cancer? How many do you know today? Filmmakers go to South Dakota following a story about uranium contamination only to discover that the problem flows much farther and runs deeper than they could have imagined. Three years and thousands of miles later, Hot Water tells of those impacted by uranium mining, atomic testing, nuclear energy and the contamination that runs through our air, soil and even more dramatically, our water. From Fat Man and Little Boy to Duck and Cover, we believed it was safe to eat, drink and breathe in the shadow of the atomic bomb. Hot Water begs the question, are the thirty-eight million people in the American southwest aware that their water supply is filtered through millions of tons of radioactive waste lying on the banks of the Colorado River? Our ground water, air and soil are contaminated with some of the most toxic heavy metals known to man, and the subsequent health and environmental damage will take generations and in some cases, thousands of years to heal.


Kevin Flint is a film school graduate from California State University, Long Beach. He dreamed of becoming a filmmaker since he saw Star Wars as a child. It wasn't until 2001 that Kevin found the story that would become his first feature film. His twin brother decided to quit his banking career to pursue a new career as a professional trapeze artist with the most elite circus in the world, Cirque du Soleil. Catching Dreams, filmed across the globe over eight years, became an award-winning documentary. Starting his own production company in 2008, Kevin has been the director of photography on numerous projects, including the feature film The Ridley Project, which he shot and directed on location in Costa Rica. He worked with Liz Rogers on the award-winning feature documentary On Sacred Ground, the story of Native Americans continued struggle to preserve sacred sites in South Dakota.
