Drone's Eye View Offers Eerie Glimpse of Nuclear Desolation in Chernobyl's Shadow

A short documentary offering an aerial view of a city that once thrived in the shadow of the former Soviet Union’s most notorious nuclear power plant offers a devastating critique of atomic power without uttering a single word.

Employing a remote-controlled drone over and amid the abandoned Ukrainian city of Pripyat, filmmaker Danny Cooke explores the contours of rusted-out amusement park rides and empty buildings left to crumble in the wake of the meltdown at the Chernobyl plant on April 26, 1986. Cooke shot the footage recently while on assignment for CBS News.
