INTO ETERNITY (2011)
Last week I saw this at the Vancity Film Centre and it was really interesting! A documentary, that is part sci-fi and part dream, that explores the ideas behind how to construct a nuclear waste storage facility deep in the frozen bedrock of Northern Finland, and then how to warn future generations to leave it alone. It is not as simple as putting signs up or depending on people in the region to know what is underneath them. Nuclear waste remains toxic for up to 100,000 years, so how will people know 300, 500, or 1000 years from now what is there, and will they even be able to understand our language? Very interesting film by director Michael Madsen.
