Pripyat is a completely modern abandoned city about 2km from Chernobyl (inside of the Chernobyl exclusion zone) in Ukraine. Over 20 years ago (26 April, 1986), there was an accident in one of the nuclear reactors there that became one of the worst technological disasters in history.
We got some really fantastic footage of both cities as well as the reactor. When we put the film together, we thought it would be helpful to include some information about what happened. Here's the final product.
This footage of Chernobyl and Pripyat was filmed on August 7, 2007 by Jason Strain. Produced by Jason Strain. Narration is by Laura Corliss. Music is by Brokenkites.
