FURUSATO 古里 reveals the unusual relationship between a landscape and its inhabitants. Over the course of a thousand years, the exuberant nature of Japan’s eastern coast has become interwoven in the lives of its people. Here, the earth is sacred - but now, it is tainted with the invisible danger of radiation. For those who have decided to stay, the rural scene surrounding the crippled Fukushima Daiishi nuclear power plant remains the place they call home - their furusato, the first place they experience as children and the last one they will see before they die. A monumental portrait of a wounded community and an unsparing look at the human cost of progress, the film illuminates the four years that followed the worst nuclear disaster of our time. Here, no one measures in half-lives. This is about eternity.

On Nov 2 in the presence of Thorsten Trimpop.
