Pripyat Documentary at Vancity Theatre

A haunting, monochromatic vision of life in the not entirely abandoned radioactive “Workers’ City” of Pripyat more than a decade after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986, Nicholas Geyrhalter’s film is akin to a documentary version of Tarkovsky’s Stalker, a potent, patient meditation on a post-apocalyptic city which is gradually being reclaimed by nature, and the handful of hold-outs who refuse to give up the ghost. Using long, still takes and interviews with four of the residents, Geyrhalter constructs a movie that is both concrete and abstract.
