The 1991 Academy Award®- winner for Best Short Documentary, Deadly Deception uncovers the disastrous health and environmental side effects caused by the production of nuclear materials by the General Electric Corporation. The film juxtaposes GE’s rosy “We Bring Good Things to Life” commercials with the true stories of people whose lives were devastated by the company’s involvement in testing and making nuclear weapons.
Driven by intensely personal testimony and painstaking research, Deadly Deception exposes what GE never wanted its customers to know: a shocking pattern of negligence and misinformation spanning several decades. Nine months after this film won the Oscar®, GE pulled out of its work in the nuclear weapons industry, and Corporate Accountability International organizers of the GE boycott, declared victory in their grassroots campaign.
Produced in association with Corporate Accountability International (formerly Infact), Deadly Deception is one of many client projects GroundSpark has produced for public-interest organizations.
