The Incommensurables in association with Honours Candidate Brett Spulak presents: 'Into Eternity'
'Into Eternity' is about the continuing construction of 'Onkalo' - the Finnish solution to the problem of high-level nuclear waste which remains dangerous for up to 100,000 years. The documentary details the construction of Onkalo (ongoing since the 1970s and as-yet-unfinished) and the problems of communicating the threat contained within to far future generations. It is an eerie and wonderful film.
My work is focusing on the role of risk and ethics in Australia's nuclear waste policy. Australia does not have any plans for a high-level waste facility, although there has been suggestion that Australia could successfully and profitably host an international repository. 'Into Eternity' will provide an interesting and fruitful comparative look at another nation's progress in this difficult and important issue.
