Field & Screen: Nuclear Nation
Field & Screen: Nuclear Nation |
Filmed the wake of JapanŐs catastrophic tsunami and subsequent Fukushima reactor disaster, this documentary takes an unflinching look at what happens when an entire township is suddenly displaced.
Nuclear Nation follows the exiled residents of the small Tokyo suburb Futaba. While other damaged cities begin to rebuild, Futaba remains solidly in an exclusion zone: an area so traumatized by the reactors in its power plant that itŐs rendered uninhabitable. As the Futaba residents attempt to resettle, their resiliency and determination quickly turns to frustration and rage when governmental and corporate indifference, as well as a troubled nuclear policy, creates numerous roadblocks. A heartbreaking, sometimes angry, account of life in the aftermath of disaster. (145 mins., HDCAM)
