Principal photography completed!

Thu, December 06, 2012

Thanks to all of you who supported the Babushkas of Chernobyl project through our hugely successful Kickstarter campaign.
The funds raised allowed us to return to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and continue to film with the women. We’re just back, furiously translating our tapes and screening footage.
Check out our Kickstarter site/blog for updates we posted from the road, and news as we seek finishing funds and move through post production. And in case you missed Holly Morris’ article that launched this entire Babushka endeavor - it was recently republished in London’s Telegraph as well as The Week.

We’ll be posting footage from our shoot soon. In the meantime, how about a Globe Trekker exploration of the Exclusion Zone ghost town of Pripyat to tide you over?  A travel
moment perhaps better experienced from the armchair....
