Nuclear Savage.

       How the developed so called capitalist democratic West treats others in this world.
This from The Free:  
     “John is a savage, but a happy, amenable savage.” Thus intones the voice on a ’50s-era newsreel clip in the documentary, showing footage of seven male Marshall Islanders who have been brought to the United States for radiation testing. “John is mayor of Rongelap Atoll. John reads, knows about God and is a pretty good mayor.”The film does a stunning job juxtaposing examples of the smug ignorance of South Sea culture with the reality of what the US did to it.
     In “Nuclear Savage” Adam Horowitz exposes American hubris and the horrors of nuclear testing visited on the Marshallese people in one of the darkest chapters of human history. The United States conducted nuclear tests and deliberately exposed the Marshallese people to radiation and studied the effects it had on them in a secret project called Project 4.1.
