FOLLOWING FUKUSHIMA: Three Works Documenting Disaster and Its Aftermath

“Nuclear Nation”

Auditorium, Henry Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse Ave.
Director: Atsushi Funahashi
(2012, 96 minutes, BluRay)

A documentary about the exile of Futaba’s residents, the region housing the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Since the 1960s, Futaba had been promised prosperity with tax breaks and major subsidies to compensate for the presence of the power plant. The town’s people have now lost their homeland. Through their agonies and frustrations, the film questions the real cost of capitalism and nuclear energy. For more information, visit:
