Opening February 2nd and running for two weeks at Film Forum in NYC, “Into Eternity,” is a Danish-directed documentary about Finland’s plan to bury its nuclear waste forever. The eerie documentary centers on the questions raised by the excavation of a 400m deep (1,600 ft) tunnel, “Onkalo” next to the Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant in Eurajoki. The storage cave is built to last 20 times longer than the pyramids so far and survive the next ice age, but the main question might be on how or whether to warn the future generations about its contents.
Pre-screened at Tribeca Film Festival last year, the critics are calling the film intelligent, thought-provoking and spooky.
