GREETINGS FROM MURUROA (BONS BAISERS DE MORUROA)

Synopsis: 

Film about France's atomic bomb tests in the South Pacific at the Mururoa atoll. The filmmaker allows the surviving atomic tests veterans - which unknowingly irradiated themselves and their families - to speak up. "My biggest regret is to have contaminated my daughters, and can be, my
grandchildren“, says Florence Bourel. She had stayed several times at the atomic bases of Moruroa. Her daughter Marion, 22 years, it suffers from several radiation-induced diseases and cancer. Like her mother, she is also afraid of the future: "... and if I have children, will they be healthy?“ Florence was proud to work for the good of France. There, in the blue lagoon where the bombs exploded, she was diving and water skiing. "The hierarchy has never mentioned any risks. They only said we should not eat fish from the lagoon and wipe with a sarong and not a towel.“
