From the wikipedia article on the recent movie:

Into Eternity is a feature documentary film directed by Michael Madsen, released in 2010.  It follows the digging and pre-implementation of the Onkalo nuclear waste repository on the island of Olkiluoto, Finland. Director Michael Madsen questions Onkalo’s intended eternal existence, addressing an audience in the remote future.

This movie is getting a lot of play in Japan.

Imagine each country with nuclear power plants with its own long-term nuclear waste depository ready to keep the waste safe for 100,000 years or so. Considering we’ve only been reading and writing for about 10,000 years, and blogging for 10, that’s a pretty long time.
