Yukiko Nagakura made these films based on fieldwork which she carried out in Fukushima in 2016. She interviewed women asking how they struggled with the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster of 2011. Yukiko Nagakura compiled the women’s personal stories into four films. These films tell of the menace of a radiation contamination from a female perspective, forcing us to face an urgent and universal problem concerning women’s empowerment worldwide.

After the screening, everybody is invited to stay for an informal talk, have a few drinks and share their impressions on the films.
