Documentary / Japanese

Tokyo-based documentary filmmaker Yojyu Matsubayashi, anxious to document the tragedy of the tsunami in northeast Japan and the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, won the trust of the Tanakas, a middle-aged couple working to help people forced to evacuate their homes in the town of Minami-soma. Matsubayashi’s portrait of the Tanakas’ dedication and of the varying experiences and emotions of the evacuees creates a compelling image of loss and resilience.
