Documentary About Fukushima Children Wins Film Festival

The film A2 by Ian Thomas Ash won the Nippon Visions Film Festival non animation category. The event took place earlier this month in Frankfurt Germany. The film looks at the problems parents and children in Fukushima have had with health and safety following the nuclear disaster. How the official health survey has in many ways made things worse and left parents with limited places to turn while more and more children show with problems.
