Lenins Lamp-MPEG-4 15 MbpsWhen the model of reactor 4 starts burning it is dark. Flittering strips of fabric illuminated from below by yellow and red light. It turns light and the set pieces in the background are hoisted up and down and the same machine also turns the nuclear power plant upside down so that a new model emerges. The reactor is now enclosed in the sarcophagus. It turns dark again. Then the clapper that strikes the side of a bell. Two dogs look towards the camera on a snowy road. Trunks of pine trees on a photographed box of photographic paper.
