The Atom Station

La stazione atomica
by Nick Jordan United Kingdom 2015 13'

From vaporous hot springs and lava fields to the peculiar structures of geothermal power stations, we go through the industrial and natural landscape of Iceland with two corresponding voice-overs from the past and present: poet W.H. Auden, reading Journey to Iceland (1937), and environmental activist Á“mar Ragnarsson. Auden's contemplative poem expresses a desire to leave behind the trappings of modernity and the approaching war. Ragnarsson's contemporary callings are a rallying cry to protect a vital wilderness, under threat from international aluminium corporations.
