Radioactivists: Protest in Japan since Fukushima

Germany/Japan, 2011, 72 min, Japanese/English, Spanish Subtitles

Fukushima anti-nuclear demonstrations during May and June 2011. We have filmed at demonstrations and talked with the activists who organized them. We also talked with intellectuals, social and political scientists, about the magnitude of the current protests. During these months, we met a lot of inspiring people and got heaps of interesting footage of this new-forming movement, which seems to combine so many groups and organizations and may cause a major shift within Japanese politics and society. With RADIOACTIVISTS, we captured the spirit of this momentum, showing the challenges and triumphs of a movement of great historical significance.
