Birdsong: Stories From Pripyat

Directed by Clara Casian

An amusement park in the city of Pripyat was due to be opened on the 1st May 1986, but the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred just 3 miles away on April 26th.

The park’s owners opened the park for a couple of hours the following day for the people of Pripyat before the city was evacuated. Eerie images of the deserted Pripyat Amusement Park now permeate the visual representation of the city’s desolation.
