Nuclear Nation: story of Fukushima refugees

In partnership with

Almost a year after the explosion at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant, the 1,000 or so residents of the nearby town of Futaba do not know when or even if they will be able to go home.

Premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, Nuclear Nation is their story.

After the earthquake and tsunami rocked the nuclear facility, the entire community fled and were housed in a school 250 kilometres away, where many are still living.

Based on interviews filmed over the course of the year, the movie captures the monotony of daily life for the nuclear refugees.
