17 Oct Into Eternity (Michael Madsen, 2010, 75 minutes)
Monday, October 17, 2011 / 7:30 PM
Admission: $6 general / students free
The mind-bending film explores the utter impossibility of storing nuclear waste for 100,000 years, the time estimated by scientists to render it safe. Especially relevant since the earthquake and crisis at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan, Into Eternity is both an investigation about the Onkalo storage facility in Finland and a starkly beautiful work of art. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s director Michael Madsen, who has been involved in contemporary European debates on nuclear futures.
