In Finland the world's first permanent repository for high-level radioactive waste is being hewn out of solid rock - a huge system of underground tunnels - that must last 100,000 years, as this is how long the waste remains hazardous. Once the waste has been deposited and the repository is full, the facility is to be sealed off and never opened again. But how can that be ensured for the near and very distant future? "Jaw-dropping! Tackles a subject almost beyond comprehension." (The Guardian) Shown with Peter Mettler's Petropolis: Aerial Perspectives on the Alberta Tar Sands. "Finds both horror and strange beauty in man's capacity to force nature to bend to his skewed vision." (Toronto Star) More at Digital Projection
