„Unser Fukushima-Event im März ist quasi der Probelauf für unser Internationales Uranium Film Festival, das in diesem Jahr vom 20. bis 30. Mai wegen der andauernden Corona-Restriktionen erstmals online stattfinden wird“, erläutert Festivaldirektor Norbert G. Suchanek.  „Aus Anlass des Inkrafttreten des UN-Vertrags über das Verbot von Kernwaffen (TPNW)  am 22. Januar diesen Jahres ist neben Fukushima auch die Geschichte der Atombomben und ihr Einsatz ein Schwerpunkt des Festivals in diesem Jahr.“ 

Zu den Filmen

Almost two years after the accident in Fukushima, Masami Yoshizawa, a cattle farmer who refused to leave the forbidden zone, explains what has become his mission in the life he has left. His land is contaminated forever. However, he remains on his farm and works to make the tragic consequences of radioactive exposure known around the world. His speech is the centre of this poetic short film, made during the second trip by Italian filmmaker Alessandro Tesei to Japan, with photographer Pierpaolo Mittica and researcher Michele Marcolin. They wanted to understand the changes that were taking place in the forbidden zone. Trailer and more: http://www.alessandrotesei.com/portfolio/fukushima/

About Director Alessandro Tesei: Graduated in visual and multimedia arts from the Macerata Academy of Fine Arts, with a thesis on the social importance of documentary. Inspired by masters like Herzog, Pasolini, Ciprì and Maresco, he decided to follow the path of investigative documentary. After a few years of experimenting with various artistic disciplines, such as sculpture, performance, theater, he started to dedicate himself essentially to photography and video. In 2011, after the Fukushima accident, Tesei began to investigate and to tell the story of people who live in radioactive contaminated areas. From that experience, the first feature film "Fukushame - Lost Japan" was born. In 2012, he returns to Fukushima Prefecture to document the reopening of part of the evacuated area and to interview one of the people who symbolised the disaster, the farmer Masami Yoshizawa. He is the protagonist of his short film "Fukushima no Daimyo". Photo: Alessandro Tesei at the Uranium Film Festival Rio de Janeiro, 2016
