October 19, 18:00, KSuns
Settled somewhere in nowhere in the South Ural region in Russia, the film tells the story of the people living in one of the most radioactively contaminated spots on the Earth. Unbeknownst to a wide public, this region was repeatedly irradiated by different accidents on the nuclear facility Mayak, which was the first plant for the production of fissile material for nuclear weapons in the Soviet Union and is still in operation. Rather than to make an investigative flick, the attempt of the filmmaker is to find a cinematic translation for the danger that is not perceptible and to capture the strenght of people and nature that has to cope with it.
