MOVIE「Hibakusha – from Hiroshima to Fukushima, Nuclear Capitalism Tries to
Rebound” (67 minutes)」
The anti-nuclear documentary Hibakusha combines interviews with the victims
of the current nuclear disaster with comments from those who survived the
bombing of Hiroshima.
The 67-minute film (with the full title Hibakusha: From Hiroshima to
Fukushima, Nuclear Capitalism tries to Rebound) is billed as an expose of
Japan’s infamous nuclear village.
Co-directed by filmmaker and journalist Ralph T. Niermeyer and German
parliamentarian Dorothee Menzer, the film has been screened in Germany and
France and will soon travel to the US and Venezuela.
It will be screened for the first time in Japan at a vital juncture in the
country’s preparations for a new energy policy amid rising anti-nuclear
sentiment and the shutdown of all 54 of its nuclear reactors.
Come to the FCCJ on May 22nd and see a 67-minute preview of the film and
ask Niermeyer about what he hopes it achieves.
