The documentary film ›Into Eternity‹ follows the construction of the nuclear waste repository Onkalo (›Hideout‹) in Finland. It is built 4 km deep into the solid ground and is meant to be a nuclear waste repository for the next 10o.ooo years. Since there is no building that has ever lasted such a long time, the movie strives to answer the question of how safe Onkalo can possibly be.
Danish director Michael Madsen contrasts the reality of the enormous demand for energy of industrial nations on one side and questions about responsible interactions with our environment on the other. He further adresses our responsibilty as a society towards the generations that will come after us.
The documentary will be shown as part of the exhibtion ›Sharing as caring 6‹. Afterwards there will be an open discussion with director Michael Madsen and curator Dr. Miya Yoshida in english.
