ATOMLOS DURCH DIE MACHT / Nuclear Free Power to the People

ATOMLOS DURCH DIE MACHT / Nuclear Free Power to the People

Austria is the only country with a fully functional nuclear power plant which, due to a popular vote in 1978, never powered up. The film shows the civic movement which led to the everlasting ban of nuclear power in Austria. But the struggle continues, as Austria remains surrounded by nuclear power plants. Catastrophic events like Chernobyl or Fukushima have shown the vital interests of us as a people to fight this very undemocratic form of power production. The film also takes an outlook into alternatives and renewables, as climate change is becoming THE environmental and political challenge of the 21st century. (Markus Kaiser-Mühlecker)
