Synopsis
From the Soviet ruins of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant to the ancient tombs of the Etruscans, from the Andra nuclear fuel repository under France to the atomic deserts and abandoned mines of New Mexico, Burial takes us deep into the earth, not only past the thin crust of surface beneath us but into time. Technological, geological, metaphysical, Burial follows the cycle of power, the fire of creation and destruction, through dreamy suns-capes to the shadowy under-lands where we bury both the dead and the apocalyptic wastes of our progress.
