3.00pm Screening of Into Eternity: A Film for the Future

Denmark/2010/75mins/ctba

Dir: Michael Madsen

 

Into Eternity: A Film for the Future follows the construction of the Onkalo waste repository at the Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant on the island of Olkiluoto in Finland. The film explores the preparation of a site so that it is not disturbed for 100,000 years, even though no structure in human history has stayed standing for such a long period.

Acclaimed director Michael Madsen questions Onkalo's intended eternal existence, addressing an audience in the remote future. He raises the question of the authorities' responsibility of ensuring compliance with relatively new safety criteria legislation and the principles at the core of nuclear waste management. 

EXHIBITION:

Power in the Land/Per yn y Tir

BayArt, 54b/c Bute Street, Cardiff Bay, CF10 5AF.

21 February – March 17, Tuesday – Saturday, 12.00 – 5.00pm

 

The artist group X-10 present the fruits of two years working together around the closure and decommissioning of Wylfa on Anglesey, the last nuclear power station in Wales. The final shutdown in December 2015, marked the end of an era for the local community and brings to the fore the question mark over the next generation of nuclear power.

Showing a range of compelling responses through video, photography, sound, sculpture, installation and alternative photographic processes, the artists in X-10 try and come to terms with the conundrums of nuclear power, our future energy requirements and environmental concerns.

Merging art, science and technology the show presents new questions and thoughts to the nuclear debate.

Participating artists; Ant Dickinson, Bridget Kennedy, Jessica Lloyd-Jones, Chris Oakley, Teresa Paiva, Tim Skinner, Robin Tarbet, Alana Tyson, Annie Grove-White, Helen Grove-White.
