2012年，日本核災後一年，在香港人關心日本奶粉和魚生的同時，日本民間社會自發的反核運動正值高潮。當地民間媒體Labor Net Japan持續追蹤災後情況：《反核電遊行映像摘要》紀錄了一場災後三個月在東京舉行的遊行，各民間團體、外國朋友及平時甚少上街的婦女全都走出來表達訴求，全民反核令警方嚴陣以待。《被核電逼走的城市：難民和雙葉町的紀錄》在災後一年訪問一群避難至其他城巿的福島縣雙葉町災民，紀錄他們災後的集體生活、被迫遷徙的掙扎及向東京電力討回公道的過程。
The Sacrifice keeps track of the lives of the liquidators (frontline workers) since the moment of the Chernobyl catastrophe began. These liquidators tell us how the government officials tampered with their records of internal radiation, and how they were abandoned, forgotten and then became second-class citizens. While their voices might not be able to change the existing nuclear policies, will their stories be widely heard and understood?
In 2012, one year after Japan’s nuclear disaster, while most Hong Kong people concerned powdered milk and sashimi made in Japan, the anti-nuclear campaign started by local community was at its peak. Japanese local media, ‘Labour Net Japan’ kept track of post-disaster situations: Video Summary of an Anti-Nuclear Protest recorded a protest in Tokyo three months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in which various organizations, young people in vehicles with audio device, farmers with cows and spinach, foreign friends and citizens who seldom participated in social movements, all went on the streets. The crowd made the police nervously armed. In The City Exterminated by Nuclear Power: Records of Refugees and Futaba Machi, one year after the disaster, the displaced refugees of Futaba-machi, Fukushima were interviewed. The film shows how the refugees have lived together in the refuge, how they were forced to leave their homes and the process of fighting for justice against Tokyo Electric Power Company.
After the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the health of affected children became unexpected; in the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the worst case could lead to nearly half of Japan’s population became refugees; the Chinese government has planned to build more nuclear power plants in Guangdong Province; rumor has it that Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant has several radiation leakages; in recent years, the Hong Kong government has promoted ‘appropriate and effective application of radiation, safe and beneficial to humans!’…
In the end, do humans have the capacity to take the risks and consequences of using nuclear energy? What can we learn from the films, to face the ever-growing problems of nuclear energy?
