India, UK, 2016 Director: Fathima Nizaruddin Production: Joram ten Brink Dokumentary, 54 min English Filminfo: https://www.facebook.com/nuclearhallucinations2016/ The film is centered on the anti-nuclear struggle against the Kudankulam Atomic Power Project in South India. In a context where cases of sedition and waging of war against the state are filed against anti-nuclear protesters, the film attempts to question the totalitarian nature of pro-nuclear assertions through comic modes. Satirical impersonations and ironic renderings of jingoistic rhetoric work together to form a narrative that explores the tragic absurdity of constructing nuclear power plants on a tsunami affected coast.
