The short film, Four Minutes, Full Volume, depicts emergency siren tests within the evacuation zone of the recently decommissioned Indian Point Nuclear Energy Plant, fifty miles north of New York City on the Hudson River.  The film intersperses five siren tests that each run for four minutes at a single unwavering tone at 580 Hz between ambient sound scenes of the zone. Through these meditative static scenes of the evacuation zone and the siren’s sound, the short film highlights the ambiguity of grappling with the ubiquitous nuclear infrastructure around us.
