Abita: A Short Film About Fukushima Children

[Via Global Voices] “Abita”, an animated short film about Fukushima children who can’t play outside because of the radiation risk, delicately illustrates their dreams and realities. The film, produced by Shoko Hara and Paul Brenner, won the award for Best Animated Film at the International Uranium Film Festival in 2013. Despite scarce media coverage in Japan, the film has been shared widely on social media. Radiation remains a serious problem for residents in the area surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant since the plant suffered a meltdown following the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.”
