Press text: After "Occupy Wall Street"in New York, and before the "Umbrella Revolution" in Hong Kong, 200 thousand people surrounded the Prime Minister's office in Tokyo for an anti-nuclear demonstration. However, this incident was not reported extensively by the media and subsequently went unnoticed by the world. This documentary film captures the anti-nuclear protests in Tokyo after the Fukushima nuclear incident in March 2011. The theme of the film is the crisis that democracy faces, and the reconstruction of democracy. The film is composed of interviews with eight individuals and footage from that time. The eight people who appear include a former Prime Minister, an evacuee from Fukushima, a political activist, a shop clerk, an artist, a hospital worker, and a businessperson, both Japanese and non-Japanese. The film describes how these people from diverse backgrounds converged amidst the crisis. Video recordings cited in the film show the terrifying experiences of the nuclear disaster, anti-nuclear demonstrations, speeches, and the official meeting between activists and the Prime Minister. The videos were shot by independent citizens and uploaded to the internet. We sought permission to use footage from each person after explaining our intentions. As such, each person voluntarily provided their videos to us. A groundbreaking film created in a unique and unprecedented manner.

Organized by Dr. Mick Deneckere and Dr. Francesco Campagnola
