Sattel, Volker. Unter Kontrolle: Eine Archäologie der Atomkraft [Under Control: An Archaeology of Nuclear Energy]. Berlin: credofilm, 2011. 35 mm Cinemascope, 98 min.

The documentary Under Control unfolds a panorama of atomic energy in Germany. Its broad perspective reveals the real challenges and enormous efforts that nuclear power demands from humankind. The control over the nuclear fission process is not depicted chronologically but rather as a prism of places and sites that not only refracts the stations of the German atomic age but also reflects beyond the current situation. The examination of a technology once synonymous with progress also touches on elements of the history of civilization. (Source: Official Press Kit)
