Our friends in Fukushima’ (40 mins)

About two million people are living in Fukushima Prefecture. How are they coping with the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant of 11 March 2011? The film follows staff and students at Fukushima University.

Hiroshima in 2013’ (22 mins)
‘I saw everything in Hiroshima.’ ‘You saw nothing in Hiroshima.’ The dialogue is repeated in Alain Resnais’s 1959 film ‘Hiroshima mon amour’. What do you see in Hiroshima? Especially after the nuclear accident in Fukushima?

100 Bq/Kg, 0.23 μSv/h: The standard of living in Fukushima‘ (43 mins)
100 Bq/Kg is the limit of radioactive materials in general foods in Japan. 0.23 μSv/h is the air dose rate target for decontamination. What does it mean to live in Fukushima Prefecture, where about two million people are living?
