Centralized Storage

With the scientifically unsound proposed Yucca Mountain radioactive waste dump now canceled, the danger of "interim" storage threatens. This means that radioactive waste could be "temporarily" parked in open air lots, vulnerable to accident and attack, while a new repository site is sought.

"La Fuga Radiactiva (The Radioactive Leak)," a 30-minute Spanish drama about a CISF disaster

Eduardo Soto from Spain is the director of the short (30-minute) fictional drama, "The Radioactive Leak."

[But it is inspired by real life events, namely...]

In 2010, the small town of Villar de Cañas, 40 km away from the provincial capital of Cuenca, Spain, was designated as the site for the construction of a Centralized Temporary Storage Facility (CTS -- these days referred to as CISF, Centralized Interim Storage Facility, in the U.S.) which was to house the high-level nuclear waste from seven active nuclear power plants in Spain.

The anti-CTS Platform brought together a large team of activists that neutralized the development of the works for 8 years, with peaceful protests, with information, with the law.

In 2018 "La Fuga Radiactiva" ("The Radioactive Leak") was filmed to stage a radioactive future that we don't want for Cuenca. Or for anyone.

What events would happen in the case of an accident in highly radioactive waste storage facility? In the film we see this critical and anguished situation from the point of view of various characters. Their reactions inform us about such aspects of nuclear energy that aren't usually discussed in public forums. It's a thriller to make us think over the form of energy that we want to move the world.

We made the short film La Fuga Radiactiva (The Radioactive Leak) after 8 years of resistance, struggle and information against the building of the CTS 40 km away from the town of of Cuenca. We had gone through stages of euphoria and stages of discouragement. We were aware that our messages only reached mailboxes and brains of a faithful, tight audience and that there was no need to convince anyone, they were already so persuaded that they no longer responded to the calls. It's exhausting to fight with a sling against a power that does not cease to feed its troops, improve its armament and multiply their means and strategies. We were tired and we needed to present news and data under a new format. 

The Radioactive Leak has been more than a short film since the first day of its production, demonstrating its ability to rekindle the flame of conscious activism.

Watch the film, here. (In Spanish, with English subtitles.)
