A Film about Ukrainian Chernobyl zone by Austrian Director Nikolaus Geyrhalter (1999) shown at Barbican as Part of Architecture on Film. He has directed, produced, written, and worked as cinematographer for numerous documentaries and won awards for a lot of his films, including Pripyat.

A haunting and mesmerising documentary which meets the residents of Pripyat and explores the wasteland left by the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

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 there, and of those who have moved back.

Four people tell their stories to provide a deeply personal account of everyday life in ‘their’ zone and an insight into how they live with the invisible and incomprehensible danger of radioactivity.
Please arrive promptly at the advertised start time
