Thumbnail for - Japanese Currents: Nuclear Nation

Following the tsumani and meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, the residents of Futaba—all 1400—were relocated to an abandoned school building on the outskirts of Tokyo, establishing the first nuclear refugee since  Chernobyl. Filmmaker Atsushi Funahashi follows the residents for ten months as they lobby government, protest, and return to Futaba for the first time, to see firsthand the tremendous damage from the natural and nuclear disasters of March, 2011. It is a powerful documentary that features heartstopping imagery and intimate portraits of those most affected.

The film is a part of the NW Film Center's Japanese Currents film series, showcasing the best of contemporary Japanese cinema.
