311:Koko Ni Ikiru (USA, Japan, 1hr 20min)

Directed by: Kyoko Gasha


Fusako Kimagai

How do you recover from an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown that, in the span of a few minutes, wipe out members of your family, the town where you live and all that you own? Is a return to anything like 'normal' possible? '311:In the Moment' captures the experience of loss on a massive scale by telling very intimate stories of some of the survivors of the March 11 disasters in Northeast Japan. We see the power of nature to completely destroy pieces of civilization, but we also see the power of human will to overcome and endure horrific disaster.
