What Post-Apocalypse Looks Like

My friend Blake introduced me to this fascinating short film showing views from both drone and person of Chernobyl, Ukraine, from this year, 28 years after the nuclear disaster there. It brings to mind both the short-lived television series Life After People and the Planet of the Apes movie franchises both old and new as well as themes of zombie apocalypses and other types of world's ends. The musical accompaniment is also rather strikingly effective in an unexpected sort of way. I find it fascinating how quickly the vegetation has taken over the city.
Note: I live exactly 31 miles from Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant.
