Deep under the earth in Finland, a series of tunnels and bunkers are being hewn out of the rock. Onkalo (Hidden Place), begun in 1970, is a project to provide a permanent resting place for radioactive nuclear waste for the next 100,000 years. How do you mark the site for future generations? Will they understand the danger? Madsen takes us through the silent labyrinths and interviews the scientists who are thinking far beyond our lifetimes.
‘An eerie, provocativge, poetic film’ – The Observer. There is a Guardian review of the film here
Screening in partnership with West Midlands CND with an introduction by Jenny Maxwell
