A2-B-C Film

Location: UCB Room 100

Film screening of an award-winning documentary that chronicles the lives of families in Fukushima, Japan following the March 2011 "triple disaster" (earthquake, tsunami, nuclear meltdown). Families face uncertainty about evacuation, radiation exposure, decontamination, and children’s health. Citing a lack of transparency in the official medical testing of their children and the ineffectiveness of the decontamination of their homes and schools, the children’s mothers take radiation monitoring into their own hands. The film premiered in Hawaiʻi in Honolulu on March 11. Free admission, but donations for Fukushima Kids Hawaiʻi (www.fukushimakidshawaii.com) will be accepted.
