Journey to the safest place on earth

Charles McCombie of MCM was a lead advisor and also a main protagonist in this film, which after being shown at documentary cinemas around the world is now available on-line (English and German). The Director, Edgar Hagen, aimed at a film that was neither avidly pro-nuclear nor anti-nuclear; the objective was to stimulate debate on the issue of geological disposal. An interesting comment from an ex-Greenpeace Director reads as follows:

“This is not only a very important film, since the final storage question has still not been resolved and remains as pressing as ever. It is more particularly a very well narrated film that not only treats the topic with great earnestness, but also treats all participants with great respect; whether they believe in the viability of final storage or not, it allows them to have their say. As a viewer, one is fascinated by the images, many of which have never been seen before, and one learns a great deal about the problems of final storage. Above all however, the participants and their dialogue encourage viewers to reach their own conclusions.”

Gerd Leipold, Executive Director of Greenpeace International, 2001 – 2009
