Statistically speaking, a worst case scenario happens every 25 years. This calculation and assumption has been proved 5 weeks ago. The number of hours all existing power plants in the world have to run and a statistically likely disaster can happen was reached. Horrifying. On the first weekend of March 2011, a new picture was etched on the collective memory, the explosion in Fukushima. Because of this event we have decided to open a blog in an addition to our website www.inamillionyears.com.
We as photographers and filmmakers can’t respond to all of the events and information adequately because there are too many of them. This blog gives us an opportunity to communicate with more topicality and spread more information about the resistance against nuclear power. Still, the emphasis will be on photography and film making.
At the same time, we have initiated the campaign: „I Remember Chernobyl“. There, people from all over the world will tell their personal memories about the power plant accident in Chernobyl in one to two minute long video statements. After the catastrophe on April 26th in 1986 similar events to this we can now recognise in Fukushima took place because there is a considerable uncertainty due to a lack of information- it took days before some information about recent happenings and their dangers for the population had been released for public dissemination. Pictures from Fukushima in Japan have revived memories of the core meltdown in Chernobyl and with it the memories of fears, measures, talks and consequences. Today, 25 years later, we want to renew, publish and keep alive the memories of Chernobyl with the help of short video statements which contain stories about that time.
We call on you: Tell us your story about Chernobyl !
Everyone with an internet connection, a computer and a camera can send us a statement on our website or blog.
An instruction manual you can find here – it is quite easy:
Furthermore, there are still pictures and multimedia features about the resistance against the Nuclear Waste Disposal Centre at Gorleben on our website:
