The Austrian Cultural Forum in Washington D.C. will be showing the documentary, Radioactive Wolves, as part of their Environmental Film Festival. The film focuses on the wild specious that has taken over the 3,000 square kilometers around Chernobyl’s nuclear reactor after the 1986 explosion.
Throughout the film, they try to answer questions such as: How many wolves are there in this area? How do the animals survive the radioactive pollution? Do they migrate to the zone from uncontaminated areas or is there already a resident population? Does the absence of humans outweigh the hazards?
Discussion with filmmaker Klaus Feichtenberger to follow the screening.
