May 31, 2016

Join Green Film Fest & Roxie for an encore screening of The Babushkas of Chernobyl. 

To us it may be a radioactive “Exclusion Zone”, to them it’s their ancestral homeland. Thirty years since the Chernobyl disaster, a defiant community of women continue to scratch out an existence on its toxic land. Through their surprisingly uplifting stories we see the healing power of shaping one’s destiny and the subjective nature of risk.
