GREEN HORIZONS AWARD

Winner 2020

The Green Horizons Award 2020 for the best documentary with an ecological theme has been awarded to NUCLEAR FOREVER, directed by Carsten Rau.

The jury commended this beautifully shot and edited film for the calm and objective way in which it discusses the difficult issues that continue to arise out of the contrasting nuclear energy policies of Germany and France. Access to several of the major sites involved, in both countries, allows us to sample a variety of expert viewpoints – technical, economic and political – concerning the respective advantages and disadvantages of either national system. In bringing forward a series of strong voices at plant and community level, in an open-minded way, the film invites the audience to come to its own conclusions on a vital and complex issue of our time.

Special mention goes to another film in the competition, THE STORY OF PLASTIC, directed by Deia Schlosberg, for its ‘elegance, lucidity and overall power of argument.’
