‘Hiroshima after Fukushima’

‘I have seen everything in Hiroshima’, says a French actress.

‘You have seen nothing in Hiroshima’, replies a Japanese actress.

This dialogue is repeated in Alain Resnais’s 1959 film, ‘Hiroshima mon amour.’

What do you see in Hiroshima, especially after the Fukushima nuclear accident of 2011?

Do you see everything in Hiroshima?

Do you see nothing in Hiroshima?

This is a revised version of ‘Fukushima in 2013’ (2013, 22 mins)), which was edited by Hajime Kobayashi and written and directed by Yushin Toda
