Join us for an evening of film and post-screening discussion with the director Koki Ebata.

All are invited to together cultivate our power to end nuclear power. Nuclear energy and its role in our society involves an enormous complexity, which prevents us from even simply acquiring basic knowledge like why nuclear power is dangerous. So why not begin ending it with watching a film together and chatting together to think about the current catastrophe, history, and the post-Fukushima movement which has also spread to NYC? Bring your questions and ideas to share.

September 11 2011, half a year since the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor, “Amateur Riot” stages yet another anti-nuclear power demonstration in Tokyo.

311原発震災のあとにデモが始まりました。私は日本でやっとデモが始まったということに希望を見いだしています。そのきっかけを作ったのは素人の乱のような若い人たちです。―柄谷行人

福島第一原発事故から半年目の2011年9月11日、素人の乱主催の「原発やめろデモ!!!!!」が開催された。当日は約1万人が参加したが、警察の過剰警備により12人­の一般参加者が逮捕された。その当事者のひとりが、監督の彼氏だった。彼氏が釈放されるまでの12日間を追いつつ、逮捕状況を検証していく。

上映後、監督・江畠香希さんを迎えてのトークセッションを開きます。(日本語&英語)
