If you haven’t watched the incredibly powerful HBO miniseries Chernobyl yet, it needs to be on top of your list of things to watch. It’s an unbelievable and horrifying series and it is one of the best shows that I’ve seen this year. It just rocked me to the core, it is touching and explained really well.
Here we have something today which definitely worth watching. It’s a video that was created by Thomas Flight and it gives us a side-by-side look at the footage from the series and original documentary footage from the disastrous 1986 disaster.
It’s incredible and insightful, and if you know what is really going on in this footage you are seeing, you can’t help but feel sorry for the people who were forced into these conditions. You’ll also see that the creator of the series, Craig Mazin, and the rest of the talent involved with the show did a beautiful job bringing this story to life. They gave attention to all the little details and made sure the series was as close to being as real as they could get.
“It’s an interesting acknowledgment by the creators of the show of the way the meta-discussion and the experience of watching a show about true events is important to the story. And being transparent and talking about these things and the process of adapting reality to the narrative is commendable. it sets an interesting new standard for films and TV of this genre.”
