INTO ETERNITY
In Person: KARL GROSSMAN, Professor of Journalism at SUNY Old Westbury
Wednesday, May 4 at 7:30pm
Members $9  Public $13 (Includes Reception)

Onkalo (Finnish for "hiding place") is under construction: it's a cavernous world of tunnels and corridors,
a permanent storage facility for nuclear waste, meant to last 100,000 years (that's 20 times as long
as the pyramids have so far). Conceptual artist Michael Madsen's film is a creepy, eerily elegant meditation
on human folly, punctuated by philosophical and historical references, that asks: how do you keep 3,000
future generations from inadvertently opening this Pandora's Box? Should markers be posted in
every language or in hieroglyphics that say "keep out"? (Someone suggests Edvard Munch's "The Scream"
might work nicely.) Would it be better not to post any notice and hope no one will chance upon it? And what
about the Ice Age predicted to occur in a mere 60,000 years? Will the weight of the ice impact the structural integrity of Onkalo? If you
thought the Gulf oil spill was scary Finland, 2010, 75 Mins., Digibeta  In English, Finnish & Swedish w/English Subtitles
