I'm So Sorry

Year
2021
Country
Hong Kong, France, the Netherlands
Duration
96’
Director
Zhao Liang
This film, conceived as an essay-poem, questions the choice of nuclear energy and sounds like a warning. The camera passes across the faces and bodies of the inhabitants who are determined to stay in the irradiated territory. The decontaminators tear up the trees, the grass, remove the earth; we discover workers who are dismantling a German nuclear power station piece by piece, before burying the radioactive waste for 100,000 years. In poetic language Zhao Liang, like a guide from beyond the grave, laments the consequences of men's madness, which leads to self-destruction. How much do the anti-nuclear demonstrators crying for respect for the earth weigh? Man celebrates Misfortune.

I'm So Sorry, a prophetic panorama with unexpectedly poetic moments, premiered in 2021 in Cannes in the new Cinema for the Climate section.
