Link of the week

IMG_8850_resizedFollowing from last week’s review of “Voices from Chernobyl” by Nobel laureate Svetlana Alexievich, today’s featured link is a 17-minute movie based on one of the testimonies contained in it.

“The Door” – a short film by Juanita Wilson

Shot on location in Kiew and also in Prypiat inside the exclusion zone around the reactor, “The Door” is a faithful and visually stunning adaptation of one of the stand-out monologues Alexievich recorded for her book.
