Synopsis


Chaque jour, des déchets radioactifs sont stockés en couche géologique profonde en Finlande, dans un bâtiment conçu pour durer cent mille ans, par delà les catastrophes naturelles ou celles causées par l'homme. Le film pose la question de l'héritage laissé aux générations futures. Comment prévenir nos descendants des déchets mortels que nous leur laissons ? Quelles langues ou quels signes comprendront-ils ? Des experts s’efforcent de trouver des solutions à ce problème crucial afin de protéger l’humanité et toutes les espèces de la planète Terre.

Tënk's film review


You can’t exactly call this film a nightmare, or science fiction, but it’s clearly the stuff of daydreams, even though it documents disaster. It is possibly the film that questions the furthermost future from our most immediate present. Paradoxically, it is also a film that actively acknowledges the full, excessive scale of the current situation, so as to face it head on. Addressing us, mankind, who could live here on planet earth for hundreds of thousands more years, with all the nuclear waste accumulated and handed down over time, the filmmaker invites us to take a sobering look at the “remains” that we’ll leave behind us, drawing a parallel with the Egyptian pyramids, whose precise meaning still escapes us today.
