INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY - STALKING CHERNOBYL
An extraordinary look inside Chernobyl, as it is today, exactly as it was left on the day of evacuation, and how it has become an eery attraction.
Three decades after the world's most infamous nuclear disaster, illegal hiking adventurers known as “stalkers”, extreme sports enthusiasts, artists, and tour companies have begun to explore anew the mysterious, ghostly landscape, where trees and forest animals have reclaimed land abandoned by residents.
Even as survivors continue to reckon with a dishonest government’s attempts to cover up the extent of the disaster, the Chernobyl exclusion zone has turned into a bizarre tourist attraction, drawing seekers with a taste for the post- apocalyptic.
