Little Sunfish was developed to investigate the interior of the primary containment vessel of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Unit 3 in search of radioactive debris.
This film imagines a surreal narrative in which the robot escapes the disaster zone, swims into the greater Pacific Ocean and travels upstream, inadvertently spreading radioactive material along its journey.
‘Little sunfish’ features fully functioning scale replicas of the original Toshiba built ROV and reconstructed sets of the PCV and reactor interior. Filming took place in Australia & USA.
