The documentary also takes a look at the effect that Chernobyl has had on the generation of Ukrainians born in1986. It shows a generation that is increasingly unaware of the disaster's consequences and demonstrates the success that the nuclear industry has had in burying memories of its fallout. This documentary makes an important contribution to the nuclear debate, and reminds us that the consequences from this deadly form of energy are immeasurable and truly long lasting.
Recent years have seen a rebirth of support for nuclear energy, as demonstrated by the commitment by many countries to extend the lifetime of nuclear power plants and build new generations of nuclear reactors. The Turkish government is planning to build two new nuclear power plants, despite the clear warnings of the tragic disasters in Chernobyl and more recently in Fukushima. Therefore, the timing of the screenings is very relevant for the Turkish audience.
The current screening takes place at the Istanbul Medical Centre. Further information can be found on the homepage of the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Istanbul.
