(The Babushkas of Chernobyl) Director: Anne Bogart, Holly Morris, USA-UA, 2015, Ukrainian, English version / Czech and English subtitles, 72 min

After the Chernobyl disaster, the area around the nuclear reactor became no-man’s land. The streets of the abandoned settlements are now overgrown with trees, the wind rustling through the branches. However, there is life in this forbidden zone. Women who illegally returned home after the forced evacuation live in the wooden shacks. They came back to where they were born and where they want to die. In spite of the contamination, they work their small fields, gather berries and dry herbs for their ailments. The ever-present radiation is of no concern – leaving their homes would be worse. As one of them says, ‘If I leave, I’ll die.’
