A rare chance to see and discuss this film with Mario Petrucci, whose award-winning poetry forms the narrative of this acclaimed film presented by Seventh Art Productions, filmed & directed by Phil Grabsky & David Bickerstaff.
25 years ago – on April 26th – reactor four at Chernobyl nuclear power station exploded, sending an enormous radioactive cloud over Northern Ukraine and neighbouring Belarus. The danger was kept a secret from the rest of the world and the nearby population. Heavy Water tells the story of the people who dealt with the disaster: the fire-fighters, the soldiers, the ‘liquidators’, and their families.
