Storyline

On April 26, 1986, a security test at Chernobyl's nuclear plant in the former Soviet Union, triggered the greatest civilian nuclear catastrophe in history. Unable to cope with this political, environmental and human disaster, the Soviets built a wall of silence around the event. The term 'radiophobia' came to define the symptoms of the people suffering from the fallout of the radiation, some kind of social 'stigma.' Radiophobia is a touching documentary entirely shot in Chernobyl's "Forbidden Zone". This documentary examines the Chernobyl disaster and its consequences 20 years later from the perspective of a group of survivors and people who were on duty at the reactor on the fateful night. This is the first time that they have returned to the 'Zone' to reconcile their past with the ruins of the present. Inside the 'Zone' we also meet many of the peculiar inhabitants who never left this highly radioactive and somewhat surreal area. Written by Anonymous

Former residents return to the city of Pripyat
4 February 2007 | by lg028381See all my reviews

A group of former residents who were evacuated from Pripyat following a 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl plant return 20 years later and recollect their memories. A doctor gives a tour of the clinic he used to work in and explains his feelings when the first casualties were brought from the plant. He also takes us to see his apartment which he abandoned 20 years ago but some of the furniture is still there. The film also features a young couple who met in Pripyat when they were growing up and a former plant director Viktor Bryukhanov giving a rare interview. By following these people through the streets of Pripyat visiting their former homes, a viewer begins to understand how eerie the entire place is and the meaning of the word "radiophobia" becomes clear.
