Fukushima 1 x 60
This documentary tells the story of the Fukushima reporters, who shocked the world with their pictures of the nuclear disaster, the exploding reactor block one at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.
The reporters accompany the people in the area from the first tremble of the earth until today. For the victims the reporters are the only reliable source of information, offering important news about the true conditions on-site.
But today how do over 1 million people continue to live in this area? They are continuing to live a in place where everyone must carry a nuclear contamination meter, even the school children.
Many stories deal with the aftermath of an invisible threat, of overcoming the fears of something you can’t see, hear, taste or smell.
The film explores how the Fukushima reporters have changed since the catastrophe and how they now have a different understanding of their job and a better understanding of themselves.
