Review of “Chain of Decay” – film on nuclear power

CHAIN OF DECAY — IndieGoGo Chain of Decay is a feature-length documentary that brings together a series of discrete but thematically-linked short documentary and animation segments to create an engaging and provocative portrait of a world most of know precious little about – the world of civil nuclear power.
Behind the glossy PR of an industry seeking to re-assert itself in an era of climate change and dwindling fuel supplies, focusing on the machines, the technology, the facts and figures, there’s another, hidden, picture – that of the living, breathing people nuclear affects in all their messy, emotional complexity.

This film tells their stories.

Taken together, their experiences add up to a striking ‘biography’ of the industry, illuminating not just the basic historical chronology of the technology, but also the wider cultural context leading to ups and downs in its fortunes and, perhaps most importantly, society’s understanding and response. We’ve got to where we are because most of us don’t know much about nuclear power. We’ve never heard these personal stories. But if we had, would we do things differently?
