作品コメント / Director’s statement about the film




“Talking about Fukushima through film” Sep 10, 2011
The Chugoku ShimBun

Translation: “Being near the World Trade Center was frightening but the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, Tsunami and subsequent Fukushima radiation leak was so much more unnerving.”  This year, with his HD camcorder, Sunairi traveled to Fukushima and shot 8 hours of footage there. Sunairi, born in Hiroshima, came to the U.S. at 18, has created art works based on Hiroshima and the atomic bombing, 9.11 and memory. He saw people living normally in places that are heavy with radiation without any protection. Sunairi said, “People there are forced silence without sufficient information and awareness given.” Sunairi noticed that the people in his hometown, Hiroshima are indifferent about Fukushima’s situation.  He aims to make a film that will show what it’s like being there without narration or explanation. He will make it into artistic documentary film and intends to submit to the film festivals in the world.
