The movie "Threshold" was filmed on1988 by director Rollan Sergiyenko. This movie
punched an "iron" curtain of concealment of consequences of Chernobyl catastrophe.
Practically at once after being shown and a premiere in the union of cinematographers of the

On January 5, 1989 specialists of the interested departments at meeting of the secretariat of
SK USSR announced their sentence. It was strictly specified to authors that according to an
established order even before implementation of shootings it was necessary to provide the
scenario to an expert group for inference compilation.
