The Babushkas of Chernobyl

Join the Luann Dummer Center for Women for a screening and discussion of the documentary The Babushkas of Chernobyl

In the radioactive Dead Zone surrounding Chernobyl's Reactor No. 4, a defiant community of women scratches out an existence on some of the most toxic land on Earth. They share this hauntingly beautiful but lethal landscape with an assortment of interlopers--scientists, soldiers, even 'stalkers'--young thrill-seekers who sneak in to pursue post-apocalyptic video game-inspired fantasies. Why the film's central characters, Hanna Zavorotyna, Maria Shovkuta, and Valentyna Ivanivna, chose to return after the disaster, defying the authorities and endangering their health, is a remarkable tale about the pull of home, the healing power of shaping one's destiny, and the subjective nature of risk. 

Wednesday November 9th | 5:30 pm -7:30 pm | McNeely Hall, Room 100
