Adapted from Nobel Prize-winner Svetlana Alexievich’s book. Official Oscar foreign language submission from Luxembourg.
This film deals with the world of with Chernobyl, about which we know very little. Eyewitness reports have survived: scientists, teachers, journalists, couples, children… They tell of their old daily lives, then of the catastrophe. Their voices form a long, terrible but necessary supplication which traverses borders and stimulates us to question our status quo.
Directed by Pol Cruchten.
