Nuclear power – yes please? Even one’s most ardent opinions are challenged in a film, which with understated German humour takes a new look at an old dispute.

Where should future energy come from when there are more and more people who want to share it? Nuclear power is one option, but the controversial source of energy is also a political minefield. In former East Germany, many nuclear power plants are being decommissioned as a result of Merkel’s new policy that came in the aftermath of Fukushima. But both in the small local communities and on the international political stage, nuclear energy remains a popular option. ‘Nuclear Forever’ uses a thorough approach and understated German humour to look at the arguments for and against nuclear power, but also at the great European context and the human factor in the difficult questions.
