Abstract:

Journeys into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone several decades after the world's worst nuclear disaster in April 1986. The tightly regulated 1000 square mile Dead Zone remains one of the most radioactively contaminated places on Earth, complete with military border guards. Surprisingly, a defiant, spirited group of elderly women scratches out an existence in this lethal landscape. The resilient babushkas are the last survivors of a small community who refused to leave their ancestral homes after the Chernobyl disaster. The film follows the women for over a year, capturing their unusual lives in the Dead Zone. While the babushkas' spirit mirrors the determination of the Ukrainian nation, a country that continues to survive despite its ongoing conflict with Russia, it remains unlikely Chernobyl will be repopulated anytime in the foreseeable future.
