No Man's Zone
Year: 2012
Film Length: 105 minutes
Subtitles: English
Director: Fujiwara Toshi
Distributor: SIGLO
Discussants: Mark Roberts (UTCP), Élise Domenach (UTCP)

Following the Fukushima No.1 nuclear crisis of March 11th 2011, an evacuation order was proclaimed for the 20 km area surrounding the power station, making the costal region of Fukushima a vast abandoned no-man’s zone. On the eve of complete governmental restriction, the camera wanders to record the devastated landscapes as well as the beautiful spring flourishing. Nothing seems to have changed except that all humans have left, for radioactive contamination is invisible.

No Man’s Zone is a record of these forbidden landscapes, a philosophical essay in images and sound meditating on the fundamental nature of visible and invisible destruction, a portrait of people never losing their dignity, and of the richness of their culture soon to be lost.

After its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, No Man’s Zone has screened at over forty international festivals including the Festival International Documentaire de Marseille, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the 'Cinema Verite' Tehran International Documentary Film Festival, Amsterdam International Documentary Festival (IDFA), Bangkok World Film Festival, Cinema Digital Seoul Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, and the Taipei Zero Nukes Film Festival.

No Man’s Zone will open in theatrical release from Feb. 1st, at Eurospace. 2月1日より、渋谷・ユーロスペースにてロードショー 配給:シグロ

We are pleased invite you to join us for this special advance screening, to be followed by a discussion and Q & A with the director.
