Nuclear Forever

Director: Carsten Rau

Germany, 2020



Germany is turning away from nuclear power in 2022. Yet the country’s nuclear nightmare goes on: with umpteen thousands of tonnes of radioactive waste and the hazardous dismantling of power plants which will take decades. “Nuclear Forever” by Carsten Rau takes an equally profound and alarming look at mankind’s dream of atomic energy, in grand scenes that have yet to be portrayed like this, and in six interwoven episodes. In the end, the viewer can and must form their own impression of the mania called nuclear power. That has no end.
