INTO ETERNITY (nuclear eternity) (2009 DENMARK FINLAND SWEDEN ITALY) D/W: MICHAEL MADSEN P: LISE LENSE-MOLLER
Onkalo is a huge underground spent nuclear fuel repository in Finland, the construction of which is set to be done sometime around 2100. The plan is then to have it filled-in so that the material will stay buried for at least 100,00 years (when it will no longer be harmful). There isn't much hard tech about how all this will be achieved, rather this nicely minimal doc. concerns itself with more philosophical issues, such as whether future generations will understand the danger or not, and how to convey this sense to them. Kraftwerk's Radioactivity is heard.
