PROJECT FUKUSHIMA! was instigated by musicians Yoshihide Otomo and Michiro Endo, as well as the poet Ryoichi Wago, all born or residing in Fukushima. The initiative is a network for trying out new social forms with artistic activities as their basis. It reflects on problems that confront the region after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The project was begun in May 2011. In August of that same year came the first “FESTIVAL FUKUSHIMA!” which attracted more than 10,000 visitors. The activities of the network also include the internet broadcast station “DOMMUNE FUKUSHIMA!”, the “SCHOOL FUKUSHIMA!”, a place for further education, as well as the fund-raising initiative “DIY FUKUSHIMA!” This is meant to provide a financial basis for the long-term continuation of artistic activities. Filmmaker Hikaru Fujii accompanied the activities and discussions during the preparations for the “FESTIVAL FUKUSHIMA!” with his camera over a period of seven months. The documentary film precisely and unpretentiously observes the different attitudes of the participants, also illuminating the areas of conflict between the protagonists.
