Clouds of Chernobyl

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE

WINNER: Gamble-Paison Prize for Best International Feature Film

Clouds of Chernobyl tells the story of a young woman under extreme pressure by her mother-in-law to have an abortion as a result of children being born dead or with malformations following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Thirty-three years after the fall of communism and one hundred years after the founding of the Romanian Communist Party, three young independent filmmakers deliver their feature film debut with a narrative drama about an invisible enemy: the radioactive cloud of 1986.
