Jane and Louise Wilson's The Toxic Camera, screened as part of Les Rencontres Internationales, Berlin 2015.


The Toxic Camera, a film reflecting on the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, premiered at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, late 2012 and is now touring internationally. Inspired by the film Chernobyl: A Chronicle of Difficult Weeks made by Soviet filmmaker Vladimir Shevchenko in the days immediately following the accident.

The Wilsons’ film explores interconnecting stories from interviews conducted with Chernobyl ‘veterans’ and with Shevchenko’s film crew, 25 years after the incident. The narrative includes the story of the camera that Shevchenko used which became so highly radioactive that it was subsequently buried on the outskirts of Kiev
