Today marks two years since the beginning of the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. Put numerically, it's two years since three reactors melted down, causing an estimated $200 billion plus in damages, and forcing the displacement of more than 160,000 people previously living in the now state designated 'evacuation zone.'
It's important to note that additional thousands evacuated the region surrounding Fukushima amid health and economic concerns, though as far as compensation goes, they're marked as "volunteers" and thus, undeserving of recompense.
We are very excited to invite you to celebrate the launch of our documentary, LOST & FOUND.
Join us for a fundraising extravaganza featuring original artwork from the film (by the magnificent Kathryn Ruppert-Dazai), tsunami items soon to be reunited with their owners in Japan, and a media centre unveiling our trailer and scenes from the film.
Have a drink at the cash bar, check out the film, and get the chance to purchase limited-time offers from Hot Docs such as Festival Tickets and exclusive Party Passes.
This is a free event and all are welcome!
Come and witness first hand the epic endeavor that is underway and support us in reuniting objects from the 2011 tsunami with their owners.
