Back in 2006, nuclear power was just starting to make its way back into the headlines – not as the dirty, dangerous power source that had brought about disaster at Chernobyl but as a clean, green solution to the growing problem of climate change. Back then, Vicki thought she was making a film about the comeback of nuclear power, of why and how it was happening. Fast forward to 2016 and things look a little different. The accident at Fukushima had a major impact on global confidence in nuclear – and nowhere more so than in Germany – but other factors, particularly economic ones, have also played their part in the stuttering renaissance. Just look at the pickle the UK government and EDF are in right now over plans to build the first new nuclear power plant in Britain in over 20 years, at Hinkley Point in Somerset. But many people still fervently believe in nuclear power and the promises made for it. And yet at the same time of course, many other people remain vehemently, passionately opposed. costs will come to around £20,000. We will be able to claim back 25% of these costs in the form of the UK film tax credit but are looking to crowdfunding, to all the people who’ve helped us get to this stage, as well as to new supporters who are excited by the film, to help raise the rest of the money to cover these vital final costs. If everyone who has ever donated before gave just £10, we would reach 85% of our target. If we exceed our target, every penny will get us closer to paying for the archive, music, graphics and other costs involved in finally bringing this huge labour-of-love to the screen.
