A Sunday in Pripyat

(Un dimanche à Pripiat)
France, 2006, 26 min, English
Written and directed by Blandine Huk & Frédéric Cousseau.

Somewhere in Europe there is a forbidden zone. Lying in the heart of this zone is Pripyat, at one time a model city inhabited by some 50,000 people. On April 26, 1986, an invisible enemy forced the residents of Pripyat to evacuate the area in order to escape. Pripyat was home to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers. It was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster.

A Sunday in Pripyat is a testimony to environmental and human destruction caused by the Chernobyl nuclear power station disaster.
