The Toxic Camera is a short film by British artists and Turner Prize nominees Jane and Louise Wilson that reflects on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Inspired by the story of filmmaker Vladmir Shevcheko, who died a few months after making Chernobyl: A Chronicle of Difficult Weeks, and his highly radioactive camera, The Toxic Camera interconnects the stories of survivors, 25 years later, to explores the vulnerable nature of the landscape and the human body.
