Slaboshpytsky promises to release new feature film on Chernobyl next yearA feature film titled "Luxembourg", the shooting of which will start in late 2015, is scheduled to be completed next year.

Director Myroslav Slaboshpytsky told a press conference hosted by Ukrinform.

"Starting from the new year holidays we worked on the choice of background nature in Chernobyl zone where we filmed the local scenes. But until recently we were not sure if we obtain some government financial support. I thank the state movie producing agency for its financial support of UAH 10 million. If it were not for this support, everything would be much more difficult. I hope that next year, when the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster is remebered, we can watch this feature film,” said Slaboshpytsky.

He noted work on the film had begun over a year ago, after the festival in Karlovy Vary, the Czech Republic. In general, he has attempted to shoot a film about Chernobyl for ten years.

The director also explained the movie title: "The feature is called "Luxembourg" because when you arrive in the Chornobyl exclusion zone and go through a safety training, you are told that the Chornobyl zone is comparable in size with the territory of the Duchy of Luxembourg. It's a type of metaphor. It is a country located within a country. They have their customs, their people. On the one hand, there is a threat of radiation, on the other - the feeling of some kind of freedom. Perhaps for many people this is the best place in the world. And the people working there is a fraternity of with a separation system friend-outsider, it is the world in itself. "

Slaboshpytsky noted that the causes of the accident will not be discussed in the film, while the movie will tell "about day-to-day lives of the residents in this bizarre territory." And he also added that "the director’s hidden pearl will definitely be inserted there."
