When a triple disaster hit Japan on March 11, 2011, German directors Julia Leser and Clarissa Seidel were already there. They decided to cover the evolving protest movement and demonstrations from the beginning and provide a contrast to the stereotypical mass media coverage. The film presents Japanese intellectuals, sociologists, scientists, and anti-nuclear activists, commenting critically on the events and effects of the TEPCO disaster and seeing the protest movement as a historical chance. RADIOACTIVISTS is a unique document of our times.

World premiere, directors attending.

Followed by discussion with Professor Steffi Richter (Leipzig University).
