The Wind from FUKUSHIMA
Iitate and Kawauchi were classified as a heavily contaminated area by the Fukushima nuclear accident. This documentary features people who had been farming in those areas. Radioactive contamination changed drastically their living and life, those who lived there. This film shows a quiet drama of their lives of "since then", that people leave or remain in the place where they had lived for a long time, don't give up the nuclear problem. They never yell their voices of pain, sorrow and anger. But each of them surely tells us something to our future, the way of interacting nature, the way we treat life, the way we live. The film stares at the problem of the Fukushima nuclear accident, from the origin of people to live.
