Sunday 11 March at 18h15: On the anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Into Eternity, an excellent award winning Danish documentary (in English), will be shown at the Labia on Orange. Into Eternity is a haunting, provocative and visually striking film that explores Onkalo, a nuclear waste disposal site being built in Finland, a facility that is being built to last 100,000 years as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.
Captivating, wondrous and extremely frightening, this feature documentary takes viewers on a journey never seen before into the underworld and into the future.
“Jaw-dropping! Tackles a subject almost beyond comprehension. One of the most extraordinary factual films to be shown this year. Madsen’s film does not merely ask tough questions about the implications of nuclear energy…but about how we, as a race, conceive our own future. This is nothing less than post-human architecture we are talking about. Why isn’t every government, every philosopher, every theologian, everywhere in the world discussing Onkalo and its implications? I don’t know, but they should see this film.”
