Runtime: 114′

In the framework of World Environment Day, the United Nations in partnership with the BOZAR invite you to the screening of: “Nuclear Nation II”

Nuclear Nation II follows a new group of people exiled from Futaba, the region occupied by the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Since the 1960s, Futaba had been promised prosperity with tax breaks and major subsidies to make up for the presence of the plant….until the townspeople lost their homeland on March 11, 2011. The film portrays their lives as refugees in an abandoned high school, and in temporary housing. The political fallout from the nuclear disaster results in conflict between residents. Through their agonies and frustrations, the film questions the real cost of nuclear energy and unbridled capitalism.
