AEON VIDEOS l The Ray Cat Solution

Director of Photography

"In 1981, the US Department of Energy and the civil engineering company Bechtel Corp assembled a task force to help tackle the problem of how to warn future humans to stay away from radioactive nuclear waste sites thousands of years into the future. [...] An exploration of unusually creative problem-solving, the French director Benjamin Huguet’s film probes how the once-obscure, decades-old ‘ray-cat solution’ has recently found new life."  AEON Magazine

The Ray Cat Solution is a 14 min short documentary film that answers a most pressing issue: How to create a language that will travel through eternity? The film was distributed globally and acquired by AEON Magazine for its online platform.
