For the past 5 years I have been filming within the exclusion zone in Fukushima and along the tsunami affected coast in northern Japan documenting the needs that survivors still have 5 years after the tsunami claimed 20,000+ lives and the challenges Fukushima residents face with the looming threat of radiation ever present. This film addresses the mental health needs of the displaced in in the small port town of Minamisanriku that was annihilated in the tsunami in which thousands perished. For the survivors, they live in displaced housing that keeps them isolated from society and they lack places of rest where they can escape into their thoughts in a peaceful way.
