REVIEW FOR CHERNOBYL - THE INVISIBLE THIEF: A DOCUMENTARY SCREENING
Nuclear accidents are immortal, festering gloriously in the bodies of generations of victims. Here's what the Chernobyl disaster continued to demolish long after it took place.
Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Documentary Circle Of Hyderabad and the Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, is screening a 59-minute documentary "Chernobyl The Invisible Thief", on 24th July, at Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad. This is being presented as part of Point Of View, a monthly screening of documentaries. It will be followed by an open discussion.
2 decades after the disaster at Chernobyl, the impact of the event is still being felt, and filmmaker Christoph Boekel profiles a number of people whose lives have been touched by the explosion. The film focuses on the story of Dmitrij Gutin, an artist who was part of a military unit sent to the plant site shortly after the explosion and who would struggle with radiation-related illness before dying at the age of 39.
Boekel allows a number of other victims of Chernobyl to speak about their experiences, as the artist struggles to survive against long odds. Ferstrahlt Und Vergessen - 20 Jahre Nach Tschernobyl (aka Chernobyl: The Invisible Thief) was screened at the 2006 Chicago International Documentary Festival.
Entry is free for everyone. Please contact Goethe-Zentrum at 6552-6443 / 2324-1791 for further details.
