Hiroshima after Fukushima‘ (2018) and ‘Make Peace in the Philippines‘ (2015)

‘I saw everything in Hiroshima’/‘You saw nothing in Hiroshima.’ 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? In the Philippines, people are trying to make peace. As part of this peace-making process, two Japanese journalists are asked to meet with two elderly men who have lost their fathers during WWII by the hands of Japanese soldiers. What is peace?
