Nuclear Cattle (2016)
Directed by Tamotsu Matsubara
“Nuclear Cattle” is the story of innocent cattle farmers forced from the hills they’ve called home for decades due to the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
Not willing to go along with the government’s plan to slaughter their livestock and livelihoods, the farmers decide to keep their cattle alive as a symbol of resistance in the fight to rid Japan of nuclear power.
Many farmers have reached breaking point. The film examines the personal turmoil and inner conflict of embattled cattle farmers in the years following the disaster. Who will risk everything to preserve this living reminder of how we got it wrong?
