Todos Somos Japon will present two films from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Zone.

Women of Fukushima

(2012, Japan, Produced by Paul Johannessen, Jeffrey Jousan and Ivan Kovac)

Six Japanese women offer brutally honest views on the state of the clean-up, the cover-ups and untruths since the nuclear accident in Fukushima, and how it has affected their lives, homes and families. The film has been presented at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and recently won the Best Short Documentary at the Social Impact Media Awards, as well as Best Mid-length film at the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival in New Zealand.

Alone in the Zone

(2013, Japan, Produced by Paul Johannessen, Jeffrey Jousan and Ivan Kovac)

The earthquake in March 2011 caused one of the most serious nuclear disasters in world history, when the Fukushima Daiichi power plant started leaking radiation. The surrounding towns were evacuated in a rush, leaving empty homes, silent streets, and uncared-for animals. In the small town of Tomioka, however, less than six miles away from the Fukushima Daiichi plant, one man refused to leave: Naoto Matsumura, a 53-year-old fifth-generation rice farmer who is surely the most stubborn man in Japan, if not the world.
