Abstract:

In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, a Japanese farmer ekes out a solitary existence within the radiation red zone. As Naoto wanders through the empty streets of his hometown, he confronts the remnants of a lost society. Shooting on lustrous film stock, HALF-LIFE IN FUKUSHIMA reveals the surreal scope and devastation of the nuclear tragedy, and the stubborn signs of life among the ruins. As Naoto struggles to build a new life within this post-apocalyptic landscape, the documentary offers a stunning vision of a place that resembles nothing less than the set of a science fiction film about a present informed by the decisions of a bygone age. Official Selection at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Nominated for the Golden Gate Award for Best Documentary Feature at the San Francisco International Film Festival. "This nightmarish portrait of a once-thriving community that has literally been snuffed out carries substantial cumulative power."--Video Librarian.
