ABOUT THE DESIGN OF THE MOVIE POSTER
The Indian Mandala is a spiritual symbol representing the universe. The circular form represents protection and luck. Together with the infinite variety of colourful textiles, it forms an integral part of Indian culture.
This is contrasted by the cold and sober nuclear signs and symbols.
In order to visually represent the ”nuclear lies”, the design subversively uses the aesthetic communication of indian culture, the mandala. Their supposed beauty generates the ”nuclear lie”.
ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY
In Jaitapur, India is planning to build the largest nuclear power plant in the world, powered by 8 french reactors from the company Areva. In total, 40 new nuclear plants are planned. The regular accidents and the irresponsible disposal of nuclear waste are kept secret.
Praved Krishnapilla’s 60-minute film, ”Nuclear Lies“, shows the horrendous situation, lies and police violence of the Indian government in and around nuclear plants such as in Koodankulam and documents the plight of the victims involved. The film leads us through villages that lie close to the problem-reactors, the highly radioactive mines, reprocessing plants the and the planned mega-reactors. ”Nuclear Lies” tells the stories of the people affected and their fight for survival.
The Pre-Premiere took place on 7th Dec 2014, 16.30, Burgkino Vienna.
