Radiophobia

There seem to be a lot of people interested in viewing and possibly purchasing a copy of Julio Soto's award-winning 2005 documentary film about the Chernobyl accident. This is a very well-done film that includes some scenes with my friends who lived in Pripyat at the time of the accident, Lyubov Sirota and her son Sasha, who is currently the editor-in-chief of the public project Pripyat.com. I am usually left sad and speechless after viewing this film, partly due to the sad nature of the film, but also from seeing my friends returning to their former home.

If you are interested in more details about the film, see my summary and review of the Radiophobia documentary. That review is from a preview copy of the film I obtained directly from director and producer Julio Soto in 2005, before its release. This film is not available for free download on the internet (or should not be). If you are interested in purchasing a copy of this film, I suggest that you contact Luna Pictures directly.

Mike,

Thanks for the link.

I am a site editor for Pripyat.com, so am aware that the site has a copy available for download.

I do not know if Pripyat.com has legitimate permission from the producer/director to make the film available for download, which is why I did not mention it in my post.
