Ukrainian artist Fedor Alexandrovich has been obsessed with Chernobyl ever since disaster struck when he was four years old, and is prepared to put himself in danger in order to reveal the truth. He’s especially intrigued by the Duga: a huge, mysterious radio antenna near the plant site which not only played a role in the 1986 nuclear calamity, but also provided a key to understanding the current Russia-Ukraine dynamic. Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Documentary Prize at Sundance earlier this year, Chad Garcia’s bold and visually inventive film presents a fascinating journey from the Cold War to contemporary conflict.
