Info

Employing clues from the poetry of Wakamatsu Jotaro (born 1935) and other poets from Minamisoma  (a city 25 km away from Fukushima), the director weaves together voices and footage from the Fukushima prefecture as he serves as a local guide for photographers: Tsuyuguchi Keiji from Japan and Chung Chu-ha from Korea, and Nikolaus Geyrhalter, the Austrian director of the documentary film Pripyat, on their visits there.
