Heavy Water: a film for Chernobyl

filmed & directed by Phil Grabsky and David Bickerstaff

Little Theatre, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge

8.00pm (to 10.00pm approx)

£7 (£5)

Mario Petrucci's award-winning book-length poem for Chernobyl, Heavy Water, forms the narrative backbone of the film, which tells the story of the explosion and its catastrophic aftermath. Over a year in the making and filmed in the Ukraine, the result is an intensely moving film which, rather than relating the technical details of the world's biggest ever industrial accident, emphasises the effect of the disaster on the people of Chernobyl.

The poetry is read by Juliet Stevenson, David Trelfall and Samuel West.

'Heartfelt, ambitious and alive'
(Jackie Kay, The Daily Telegraph)

The film will be introduced by the director, Phil Grabsky, and the poet Mario Petrucci, and there will be a Q&A session after the showing. An unmissable event in this 20th anniversary year of the catastrophe.
