Observing a rather personal poetic, the film draws attention to the relationship between radioactive waste sites and the majestic landscapes surrounding them – a relationship we may well have initiated but whose dynamic stretches far beyond our short lives.


Synopsis

The radioactive waste sites used by nuclear power plants are like time capsules that remain eroded into the countryside for hundreds, maybe thousands of years, like a monumental, everlasting reminder of our civilization. Working with an original and distinctive poetic, the film draws attention to the relationship of these heterogeneous elements to the sprawling, majestic landscape – a relationship we may well have initiated but whose dynamic stretches far beyond our short lives.

About the director

Rosa Barba (b. 1972, Agrigento, Italy) studied theater and film in Erlangen, Germany, followed by media studies at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. In her work she prefers celluloid over digital, and she mixes feature film techniques with methodologies proper to the experimental documentary. Her short film Panzano (2000) caused quite a stir on its festival rounds.
