"Can we fear something we can’t see? In the wake of Fukushima’s nuclear disaster, radiation lingers in the minds of Japanese people. For those living amongst the uncertainty, it marks an awakening to rethink their lives.” On March 11th 2011, a radioactive meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant led to an evacuation of two million residents from the east coast of Japan. Today the Japanese government assures its people of Fukushima’s safety and urges residents to move back. However, citizens are not convinced. In the wake of the disaster, the government’s continued use of nuclear energy fueled protests amongst citizens. The lack of information transparency on radiation issues further influenced residents to continue evacuating from radiation hot spots to protect not only themselves, but their children as well. Some fear that another nuclear disaster could occur in the earthquake-prone country and their health would be compromised from long-term exposure. While some Japanese citizens take action by protesting and evacuating, others trust the government’s declarations and continue life in their hometowns. Residents stay behind because of nostalgia towards their birthplace or ancestral land. The ideology of rectitude and filial piety inculcated within them by their forefathers further reinforces their decision to remain. KAKUSEI is an exploration of how the disaster marked an awakening in the citizen’s modern ideology towards Japan and its traditional ordinance. Through the experiences of five individuals, this documentary reflects upon how culture has influenced the choices citizens make everyday, and how those have changed.
