Stalking Chernobyl: Exploration After Apocalypse is a documentary that examines the underground culture of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Three decades after the world’s most infamous nuclear disaster, illegal hiking adventurers (known as “stalkers”), extreme sports afficionados, artists, and tour companies have begun to explore anew the mysterious, ghostly landscape, where trees and forest animals have reclaimed land abandoned by villagers. Even as survivors continue to reckon with a dishonest government’s attempts to cover up the extent of the disaster, and as humanity faces new nuclear incidents in place like Fukushima, the Chernobyl site has turned into a bizarre tourist attraction, drawing seekers with a taste for the post-apocalyptic.

Stalking Chernobyl: Exploration After Apocalypse racconta la cultura clandestina della zona di Chernobyl, dove – tre decenni dopo il più famigerato disastro nucleare del mondo – “avventurieri” (noti come stalker) appassionati di sport estremi, artisti, tour operator hanno iniziato a esplorare di nuovo quel paesaggio misterioso, spettrale, post-apocalittico.
Il film è un’interessante analisi sociologica costruita attraverso il racconto dei protagonisti di ieri e quelli di oggi. La regista mostra uno spaccato della multiforme realtà odierna che pone a confronto voci dissonanti, opinioni opposte, culture differenti, tra l’utopia pre-apocalittica e il disastro post-nucleare.
