Fukushima after the nuclear disaster - keeping the cameras rolling

This documentary tells the story of the reporters who shocked the world with their pictures of the Japanese nuclear disaster. The reporters in the film accompany the people in the area from the first tremble of the earth to today. For the victims the reporters are the only reliable source of information, offering important news about the true conditions on site.

But today how do over one million people continue to live in this area? Many stories deal with the aftermath of the invisible threat and overcoming the fears of something you can not see, hear, taste, or smell. This film explores how the reporters have changed since the catastrophe and how they now have a different understanding of their jobs and themselves.
