La Zone

Take some time to explore La Zone by Guillaume Herbauta haunting digital documentary about the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.This project is very interesting and beautifully shot and executed. The use of maps with photos and video gives it a very sophisticated feel. It recently won France 24-RFI web documentary prize. It has alot of interesting interactive elements. While you are watching a video you can choose to skip to the next image or go backwards, however the audio track continues. The film deals with the “ghost town” effect of this area with contemporary footage, old photographs, and voiceover. There are many documentary portraits, as well. However, some of the videos are composed of just haunting long shots and narration.There are several ways to navigate the website; one way is along the bottom by clicking through the words near the timeline and the second is near the top through an layered icon.
