Radiation-eating Fungi-Tentacles in a post-nuclear World

 Vimeo Direktnuke

Schöner Kurzfilm von Factory Fifteen, gefilmt in der Ukraine und Kasachstan. In einer verstrahlten, post-nuklearen Welt kümmert sich ein Landentwickler um den Wiederaufbau mit strahlungsfressenden Pilztentakeln. Schick!

In a post-nuclear future, when the earth is riddled with radiation, a new urban developer proposes to regenerate the cities back into civilisation. GAMMA sets out to stabilise the atomic mistakes of yesteryear for the re-inhabitation of future generations. Using its patented 'Nuke-Root' technology; part fungi, part mollusc, GAMMA intends to soak up the radiation and remove it from the irradiated cities, rebuilding them in the process.

Setting out from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, GAMMA launches its RIG_01 BETA and heads east to the iconic disaster sites of 1980's USSR. The film follows a group of researchers investigating GAMMA's practice from launch to deployment. Moving through a trail of unsuccessful ships across the desert, we follow the researchers from Aralsk's littered sea bed east to the Ukraine.
