'Formally exacting and sonically immersive, Madsen’s approach is so hypnotic you emerge as if roused from a troubling dream.' (Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph) This sober and sobering documentary looks at a Finnish plan to bury nuclear waste: how shall we make it safe for a hundred thousand years? The haunting visuals and powerful soundtrack lead us into an extraordinary debate about whether, and if so how, this can be done.
Followed by a discussion hosted by Eric Robson
Why isn't every government, every philosopher, every theologian, everywhere in the world discussing Onkalo and its implications? I don't know, but they should see this film.
