The Battle of Chernobyl dramatically reveals the harrowing efforts to arrest the runaway chain reaction, following the first explosion on April 26, 1986 and prevent a second explosion, to "liquidate" the radioactivity, and to seal off the ruined reactor under a mammoth "sarcophagus."

The consequences of this catastrophe, the worst before Fukushima, continue today—with thousands of disabled survivors suffering from the "Chernobyl syndrome" of radiation-related illnesses, and the urgent need to replace the hastily-constructed and now crumbling cover over the still-contaminated reactor. As this remarkable film makes clear, The Battle of Chernobyl is far from over.

Discussion will be led by Marylia Kelley of Tri-Valley CAREs, Communities Against a Radioactive Environment
