Synopsis:
Japan imports 28% of its uranium from Canada. Much of that is used in the more than 50 nuclear reactors throughout Japan. This film is about how local citizens are coping with the construction of a giant nuclear reprocessing plant in Rokkashomura, a remote village in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. Japan, while its self-sufficiency rate of energy is only 4%, boasts only 50% reliance on oil as energy source, but this film asks - at what cost?

For more information about the film, here is Yumiko Kikuno's report of the recent screening of Rokkashomura Rhapsody in Yokohama.

Here is the event information in Japanese.

We hope to see many of you there!
