KINGS IN PARADISE (2016), documentary, 78 min

For years, the Caribbean island of Vieques has been plagued by an exceptionally high mortality rate. Some residents believe that aliens are responsible. Others attribute the deaths to secret tests carried out by the Pentagon. When the former mayor of the island hired John Arthur Eaves, a young lawyer from Mississippi, he had no inkling of the billion-dollar class action lawsuit that was to come. Kings in Paradise searches for answers to one of the largest environmental actions ever lodged against the American government.
