- Precarious is an evocation of the aftermath of the explosion at Chernobyl, 25 years on. This road movie takes the spectator on a bleak journey from the shores of the Black Sea to the frozen heart of Chernobyl, passing through desolate, snowy landscapes, littered with abandoned villages. Squatting in this icy wasteland, the ghostly sarcophagus of Reactor Number 4 is a constant reminder of the threat still lurking below. While winter exerts its hold, ice keeps the hidden radiation at bay, but the spring thaw will once again release the surrounding rivers' toxic flow. Accompanied by testimony from a group of unseen veterans of the disaster, Precarious bears witness to both the folly and resilience of humans and to nature's fragility.
