Return of the Atom
aka Atomin paluu
First screened in September 2015
Directors: Mika Taanila and Jussi Eerola. Documentary about the construction of yet another nuclear power plant in Finland—the first of its kind since the Chernobyl disaster—and various problems related to nuclear energy in general and this site in particular.

Twitter Capsule: Vividly mounted and persuasive on its basic grounds, but several editing and sound choices baldly manipulate.

VOR:   You have to give it some credit for urgent messages against nuclear power and corporate heedlessness, though its tactics for communicating them are not always so sturdy.
