The world’s first movie shot in a real NPPs

This spring Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation, ROSATOM, in cooperation with the TELESTO Production Company, released the world’s first ever movie shot with real actors in nuclear power plants (NPPs)  – Atomic Ivan.

eal actors in nuclear power plants (NPPs)

This film represented a double debut for Russian movie industry, both for the director Vasiliy Barkhatov, who is a famous theatre director, and for ROSATOM.

Funny, ironic and witty – this movie is surprisingly captivating and keeps the viewer's attention till the last frame. What is life like in a small town centred on the work of a nuclear power plant? What is work at the nuclear power plant like? Who are these people who work there?

«Nuclear plants are closed objects so we just wanted public to see how people work there. Film’s characters do not entirely resemble real nuclear experts but the actors tried and in many ways succeeded to show self-contained individuals with good obsession with their work» pointed out Sergey Novikov, Director of the Communications Department at ROSATOM.

«Atomic Ivan» tells the story of a young scientist, Ivan, and his girlfriend Tanya, who both work in an NPP station. Living unattached and working in an NPP mainly because of his girlfriend, Ivan is trying to forge himself a career and find love. Tanya, on the contrary, has absolutely devoted herself to her work and to science. These two completely opposite characters experience the typical problems that all the young people face – how to organize your life and what priorities to fix.

Filming in real NPPs (Kalinin and Leningradskiy) to provide an urban environment makes the film even more fascinating and helps not to divert attention away from the main theme of the film – experiencing a range of human emotions and discovering the energy of love.

The Russian premiere of the film took place at the Oktyabr cinema, in Moscow, on 29 March 2012.
