“REACTOR” - NEW FILM ON FUKUSHIMA-ERA JAPAN SCREENS IN TORONTO

TORONTO, ON – REACTOR, a documentary that shares a compelling portrait of Japan in the era of the ongoing Fukushima crisis by Canadian filmmaker Ian MacKenzie, will screen in Toronto on September 6th.

On March 11th, 2011 a 9.0 earthquake triggered a massive tsunami off the coast of Japan. This disaster resulted in an estimated 15,878 deaths and trillions of dollars in damage, including a partial meltdown at three reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Manufacturing just fifty grams of meth in China will earn you a death sentence, and Timmy Choi (Louis Koo) has manufactured tons of it. After a violent lab accident, he's in the custody of Captain Zhang (Sun Honglei), and now he has only one chance to avoid execution: turn informant and help Zhang’s undercover team take down the powerful cartel he’s been cooking for. With the uneasy allies forced to compress months of police work into just 72 sleepless hours, things begin to spin wildly out of control, and it becomes unclear whether the cop or the criminal truly has the upper hand in master director Johnnie To’s puzzle box of a crime thriller.

Its production, however, depends on some of the most exploitative and brutal labour conditions on the planet. This event will feature a screening of Blood in the Mobile, a 2010 documentary directed by the Danish director Frank Piasecki Poulsen, and will feature special talk from an expert on international human rights and corporate responsibility, Professor James Stewart (UBC Law).

    Organized as a part of the CounterCulture Speaker Series run by the Media Democracy Project, School of Communication and the SFU Institute for the Humanities.
