Ukraine, Japan/68min./2013

0.23μSv 福島の未来It has been two years since the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. To find out the truth about the future of Fukushima, 17 ordinary citizens embarked on a journey to what now has become a dead land. They obtained a permit from the Ukrainian government to enter the site of the Chernobyl disaster, but what they saw there was anything but shocking. What used to be a flourishing city, now lies in ruins. In some areas, radioactive contamination is 300 times the permissible amount. The locals, who were forced to leave their hometown, still live in horror. Their children, who were also exposed to radiation, suffer from all kinds of diseases that doctors are unable to diagnose. It has been 26 years since the devastating disaster in Chernobyl, but its repercussions remain as serious as more than two decades ago. Where is Fukushima headed? Will Japan be able to find a way out?
