Our latest doc, STALKING CHERNOBYL, a film that examines the underground culture of illegal hikers aka “stalkers”, artists, tourists that explore anew the ghostly, post-apocalyptic landscape of the Exclusion Zone, had a 100-city release planned, but due to the pandemic, all got canceled. But following our philosophy of turning negatives into positives, we are identifying ways to involve even more people in the film’s launch, commemorate the Chernobyl tragedy, extend our solidarity to those who are in quarantine, and create a global community of viewers.
On April 16, we will post the film online, which can be accessed for FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY from April 16 to April 26. The movie will be available with English, Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Arabic subtitles. Follow our Facebook event to get access information and other event updates.
Additionally, on April 26, the International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day, at 17:00 GMT, I will discuss the film with special guests and answer viewers’ questions via Zoom. The event will be simulcast on Facebook Live. Although this event is FREE, please register via this link as space is limited. You will receive a confirmation email from Zoom with all of the meeting access details. Please download Zoom and check it’s working properly beforehand.
Please reply to this mail if you are interested in seeing the film or organizing events with it. Don’t forget to check Facebook and my Instagram for updates! Join us and invite your friends far and wide!
Yours in solidarity,
iara lee and the whole team
