Screening of the documentary, "Fukushima 10 Years Later: Voices from the continuing nuclear disaster," followed by Q&A with the Director, Dr. Komei Hosokawa
Ten years have passed since the March 11, 2011 Eastern Japan Earthquake and the accompanying explosive accident at Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The slogan of "reconstruction" feels empty for many people who suffered and are still struggling with the unending impacts of the nuclear disaster. The nuclear accident has impacted many people's lives and livelihoods in various ways. The government's evacuation-and-return policies have caused schisms and pain. The decommissioning work at the site has created a huge amount of contaminated water and fisherfolk are deeply concerned with the government plan to release the radioactive water into the ocean. The government is nonetheless pushing for the restart of nuclear reactors nationwide. Based on interviews with victims scattered in exile, this documentary film poses critical questions about the nuclear energy policies and disaster responses.
