We Are All Radioactive
We Are All Radioactive僕らはみんな放射能 (Bokura wa Minna Houshanou)
A series of short films screened before each Post 3.11 Cinema feature
A year after the earthquake-tsunami-nuclear disaster trifecta hit northeastern Japan, many small towns along the northeast coast of Japan are still struggling with the same unanswered questions: Is our food safe? Is our water safe? Can I sell my fish and vegetables at the market? Will our children die of cancer? Can we ever trust the government again? In the summer of 2011, a few months after the quake, director Lisa Katayama's film crew befriended a group of surfers based in Motoyoshi--a small coastal town 100 miles north of Fukushima. Living in tents pitched on one of the only unaffected patches of land in town, these surfer-turned-activists are rallying to get a multi-generational community of fishermen and farmers back on their feet. In Japan, the crew shot interviews with locals, anti-nuclear activists and global experts on radiation. They also gave waterproof video cameras to the residents of Motoyoshi so they could film through their own lens.
