Finnish documentary film directed by Michael Madsen

Burying nuclear waste four hundred meters underground in a shelter that will confine it for 100,000 years. This is the subject of this documentary: the Finnish project Onkalo (the cache). Nothing that man has built has withstood even a tenth of that time, claims the director. The immense project, which has already been running for several decades will only be operational in 2020. The shelter will store Finland’s nuclear waste from the next 100 years before being sealed. The film questions the ability to keep this temple prohibited and sealed for a thousand centuries.

This film will be shown at 18h30 on Monday the 12th of March.
