aware/哀れ (Part One)

Japan, 2014

Experimental Film


The film visualizes the impact of invisible radioactive contamination, how it changed our perspective of safety, not only as a local, but also as a global problem. Part one of the film is an experimental impression about the decontamination activities in Fukushima of the radiated environment. Part two is a short documentary about cleaners reflecting upon their relation with this landscape.
