    Regarding Film festivals.

    I was very surprised as well! Here in America you would be told to turn off the camera!
    The first set of Interviews I assisted a journalist from Estonia around Tohoku, so he already had a few appointments set.
    The disaster prevention or crisis management offices were the most reluctant to answer some question or even just flat our not answer them at all. This does not reflect in the film because of the translation going on and it would have been to difficult to include the back and forth japanese to English to Japanese etc
    Some officials, like the Minami-Soma City Councilman Oyama, had a point to make so he was very willing to go on camera and tell us everything he could.
    So the interviews with them were not difficult, and I felt at time with some it was part of Japanese culture to finish what you have started that kept the interviews going.
    There was no interview that I did where someone said to stop.
    There were a few questions the TEPCO rep could not answer for us, but he attempted to state his reasons why instead of “no comment”.

    Unfortunately, it is not something going away very fast… Even though the cold war has ended, the use of depleted uranium weapons in war continues in the middle east. You have dead babies and deformed children. People are sold this idea that this is all for their freedom but in reality it is for global conquest of our natural resources..

    thank you! I was very lucky to have some very kind contributors to this project. I did not have the means to make it. But it proves that if people come together for a common goal, you can make it happen!

    Well the real problem with nuclear cooling ponds from what I gathered from Prof Cham Dallas was, that they (the cooling ponds) are being used as storage not just in Japan but in the United States as well. That many are over triple their capacity because no plan was ever made to properly store the waste.
    So I think it is more than just a design flaw, the real danger is the lack of oversight and planning for the future.

    When I saw “at Risk” I mean by having 54 nuclear reactors near 4 tectonic plates conjunction points…I think Fukushima already proved that to be dangerous. Do we need another test?

    I do not think the world should be at risk for the sake of the Japanese economy or anyone’s economy for that matter. Is human life not more important than money? Will it come true that only when the last river is poisoned that mankind will realize we cannot eat money?

    It was Dr. Helen Caldicot who stated ” I knew the 3 GE engineers that designed those Marc I reactors and the resigned because they knew they were dangerous, so Japan built them on an earthquake fault.”

    About 40 percent of fish of the coast have too much Cesium to be considered safe to eat. Even Fish as far as Alaska have been found to have contamination as well.

    Awareness to the problems in Tohuku and Fukushima. People still worry about the food they have to eat. I support an Organization called Saveminamisomaproject.org which is just one of many, many grassroots relief operations there, on the ground, ready to help. But more so,

    I would like to see the world and Japan to consider discontinuing the use of Nuclear energy. It is not Necessary or even cost effective. There is no method to keep the waste. We have alternatives. I would like to see Japan reinvent its national economy with renewable energy and I would like to see nuclear power plants in earthquake areas, like San Onofre, CA, Closed.

    That is true they are building a wind farm, but one must ask, is it a serious step or just showmanship?

    Japan has an enormous tech advantage. They also could explore things like Geothermal energy considering they have all those hot springs in the mountains.

    That is true Japan has ran the country without the majority of its Nuclear power plants since the accident. There have been many safety tests. Many Groups want them back on, many do not.
    The energy conversation was not that much of a struggle. I think Japan as a country should move forward with their energy policy and show the world how it is done. I think that is very possible.

    Well they are testing the children regularly. Interestingly as much as they claimed it had no ill effect and there was no danger, they are seemingly testing them almost as lab rats in an experiment. If they are testing positive why are they not moving them many wonder?
    I was told it was because of money and they did not want the businesses to go under.
    Basically they can throw those kids under the bus to keep the economy going and pretend like everything is ok.
    We do not know if they will disclose the deaths as related to Fukushima or not.
    Even after Hiroshima, Japan did not disclosed all the deaths as related to the bomb, a lot of the drs were told to tell their patients it was something else….
