Fukushima is a parallel world. From the outside, everything seems normal. Some say that all is fine, all is under control. But today, nothing is resolved.
For more the a year and a half, Keiko Courdy met with inhabitants of the region, as well as famous Japanese public figures active since the disaster of March 11, 2011.
Overwhelmed by the events of 11 March 2011, the French director Keiko Courdy left immediately for Japan. She spent more than a year and a half talking to people in Fukushima.
In order to try to understand, she also interviewed many public figures active in Japanese society since the triple disaster: artists, architects, writers, investigative journalists, no nuke activists, Naoto Kan the erstwhile prime minister at the time of the accident… Their compelling testimonies highlight the contradictions and movements in a society that is recovering from massive trauma.
We all have to learn from what is happening. Many people dream of a « Yonaoshi », a « renewal », but is it possible?
Can we change our behavior?
