To us it may be a radioactive "Exclusion Zone" to them it's their ancestral homeland. In this remarkable tale, a defiant community of women scratch out an existence on Chernobyl's toxic land. Thirty years since the Chernobyl disaster, the women's stories show the healing power of shaping one's destiny and the subjective nature of risk. Like the wolves, moose, wild boar and other wildlife not seen for decades that have come back to the abandoned forests around Chernobyl, the women of the Exclusion Zone, have an extraordinary story of survival, and offer a dark yet strangely uplifting portrait of life post-apocalypse.
DISCUSSION WITH: Japhet Weeks, cinematographer; Steve Michelson, The Video Project.
