Welcome to “City 40”, whose residents have a higher than average standard of living than other Russian citizens – before dying prematurely of radiation poisoning.
Director Samira Goetchel uses secret filming to take us inside the city, which was closed to the outside world for decades. We follow some of the braver inhabitants battling for their voices to be heard, in a chilling manifestation of the nuclear arms race.
Carol Nahra, Sheffield Doc/Fest
