Into Eternity is a feature documentary film directed by Danish director Michael Madsen, released in 2010.
Every day, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste created by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storages, which are vulnerable to natural disasters, man-made disasters, and to societal changes. In Finland the world’s first permanent repository is being hewn out of solid rock - a huge system of underground tunnels - that must last 100,000 years as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.
Captivating, wondrous and extremely frightening, this feature documentary takes viewers on a journey into the underworld and into the future.
This 2010 documentary launched the series of Engineering Club Film Nights and was followed by an informal discussion of the issues surrounding nuclear power.
The screening took place on 5 May 2012.
