Les indignés de Tokyo (首相官邸の前で, Tell the Prime Minister) (2015, 109 mn, présentation officielle au Festival International du documentaire de Yamagata 2015)

Présentation :

After "Occupy Wall Street"in New York, and before the "Umbrella Revolution" in Hong Kong, 200 thousand people surrounded the Prime Minister’s office in Tokyo for an anti-nuclear demonstration. However, this incident was not reported extensively by the media and subsequently went unnoticed by the world.

This documentary film captures the anti-nuclear protests in Tokyo after the Fukushima nuclear incident in March 2011. The theme of the film is the crisis that democracy faces, and the reconstruction of democracy. Video recordings cited in the film show the terrifying experiences of the nuclear disaster, anti-nuclear demonstrations, speeches, and the official meeting between activists and the Prime Minister.

A groundbreaking film created in a unique and unprecedented manner.
