“Nuclear Ginza,” a twenty minute documentary on the sprawling nuclear complex centered around Tsuruga, has interviews with nuclear workers and their survivors.
The documentary features interviews and photographs by photojournalist Kenji Higuchi. The interviews are in Japanese with subtitles, and the narration is in English.
The film addresses working conditions, economic status and class issues with workers in the Japanese nuclear industry.
This film is timely not only because of the ongoing crisis at Fukushima, but because of yesterday’s incident at the Tsuruga Unit 2 reactor. Many of the workers interviewed worked at Tsuruga.
