Shiver, politicians! PBS fiction is the most effective watchdog of society. To make a real difference your drama should be both objective and brave. All genres are allowed, from drama documentary to thriller and soap. How does one portray politicians in a weekly series – without favoring one part? How can wrongdoings be fictionalized?
Chernobyl – Four Days in April Poland 13’ / 77’00
The Soviet disinformation during the first days of the nuclear catastrophe in Chernobyl (in 1986) is told from a Polish point of view with the means of docu drama. Even though we now know a lot more about the truth, the search for it turns into an exciting suspense story.
