Producer and director Tamotsu Matsubara with 30 years Documentary and media experience is president of the film company Power-I. Matsubara has been reporting on the situation in post-tsunami Fukushima since May 2011. He started filming Nuclear Cattle in 2011. This Documentary was a culmination of 5 years hard work. The aim was to film the farmers day-to-day trials and tribulations and follow them as they make the do-or-die decisions that will change their lives for good or bad forever. Tamotsu Matsubara: „We started to gather information in Fukushima from June, 2011. At the same time, we proposed this project to NHK (Japan’s National Broadcaster) and to oversea broadcasters, but we couldn’t get funding for such a sensitive topic.“
