Kaksi näytöstä ukrainalaisten Alexander Medinskin ja Denis Tolstunin dokumenttielokuvasta “The Ringing Forest Of Chernobyl” Helsingissä.
“The Ringing Forest Of Chernobyl”
Director: Denis Tolstun
Author: Aleksander Medinskiy
The documentary tackles the current situation in the area of contamination. The forests around Chernobyl have been illegally logged for years. The documentary is based on the authors’ filming in the area which is regarded as forest reserves or rather exclusion zone. All logging there is officially banned due to the high level of contamination. However, despite all bans, logging is common in the exclusion area. The forested area is diminishing rapidly in size. What is going on now in the area? Why do local people agree to have jobs as loggers? Where are ringing logs sold to? It is expected that the authors attend the screening and they can participate in the discussion.
