After the catastrophe in 1986, a 30-km restricted zone was erected around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, and 116,000 persons were evacuated from this area.PRIPYAT is a portrait of the people who still live and work in the zone, and of those who have moved back. What is life like for these people, a life with the invisible and incomprehensible danger of radioactivity? How do they deal with the aftereffects of an accident which is claimed to be statistically improbable? Four protagonists tell their stories and provide a look at everyday life in “their“ zone.PRIPYAT, released 1999 and awarded with numerous international prices, was scanned from ist original negative and is now available in a digitally restored version.
Director Nikolaus Geyrhalter
