This Tuesday Haus der Kulturen der Welt will show Volker Sattel’s film “Unter Kontrolle”. The documentary presented for the first time in the Berlin film festival 2011 makes its own topical contribution to the latest debate about nuclear power: the documentary begins with the promise of a shining, Utopian source of energy for the future. What follows is a panoramic portrayal of nuclear power generation in Germany.

The director, Volker Sattel, presents the secret day-to-day goings on of the world of nuclear power plants. “We encountered an industrial-scale technology that was both fascinating and creepy at the same time”. He goes on to say that “looking at the long term, you can sense the enormous challenges and ludicrous efforts that this form of energy generation demands of human beings.”
