A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
A sensory journey into the heart of Tchernobyl’s exclusion zone – the forbidden area around the nuclear power plant.
A sensory journey into the heart of Tchernobyl’s exclusion zone – the forbidden area around the nuclear power plant. A physical and cerebral experience, 25 years after the disaster.
The Zone is an installation combining photographs, videos and sound creations. Spectators are invited to enter into a black box, and their presence inside sets off a tangible experience of the radioactive zone, ever renewed, different for each one.
Both film and subject, The Zone plays with different time frames and narrations, interlacing them so as to recreate as faithfully as possible our perception of time and space regarding a land blasted by nuclear holocaust.
