“Killing the Darlings of Minamisoma” (trailer)
This trailer is part 4 of 4 of “In the Radiation Zone: the Children of Minamisoma”, a behind-the-scenes look at what happened during the filming of the feature documentary “Killing the Darlings of Minamisoma”.
STORY: The children of Minamisoma City, Japan are living amid high levels of radiation and toxic rain after the meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Will the children be evacuated as some experts advise, or will they stay where they are inside the 30 km zone and head back to school as the government has ordered?
Two guys with a camera – moving around, asking questions, talking to the local people. Stark, simple, surreal, and moving.
