Strahlend grüne Wiese

Radiant Green Field

Sophie Hilbert

Short film

What do you actually find if you start digging a hole? Fifty years of uranium mining in the Ore Mountains have left behind landscapes that are quite literally radiant. In a humorous, anecdotal manner, talking sometimes in High German, sometimes with a Saxon dialect, Sophie Hilbert looks for traces of radioactivity in her native region. Together with fellow performers, she presents performative images, facts and stories about the redevelopment of industrial wastelands, eco-activism, family legends and a punk festival.
