Припять / Nikolaus Geyrhalter / Austria / 1999 / 100 min / Russian & Ukranian

A portrait of the people who still live and work in the area contaminated by the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in 1986. Stories of those who stayed and those who have moved back. What is it like to live with the invisible and incomprehensible danger of radioactivity? How do they deal with the after-effects of an accident, which is claimed to be 'statistically improbable'? Four protagonists tell their stories and provide a glimpse of everyday life in 'their' zone.
