Threshold: Whispers of Fukushima

On Friday, 6-9 pm TOH 280 is this year's major Luce Initiative on Asian Studies and the Environment event. The film "Threshold: Whispers of Fukushima" will be screened and followed by a conversation with its director Toko Shiki and composer Erik Santos. The film is about the people of Fukushima Prefecture after the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear fallout disaster on March 2011.  Some of the people featured stayed in the area and some moved, all of whom kept a bright spirit, including 2 children's musical ensembles.

Having been to Japan three times since 2013, joining students in taking a close look at the landscape impacts, and hearing stories from people we met about what this event meant to them and to their view of the country, I highly recommend this film event for a rewarding Friday night.

You can view two trailers of the film at Vimeo1 and Vimeo2.

The class blog for the ASES 277 course with guess posts from my ASES 396 course are available.

A great resource about which to learn about recovery efforts and personal stories can be found at a variety of outlets, including the Tohoku Planning Forum and the 04 March 2016 cover article in Science.
