Four years ago, a triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident struck the Tohoku region of northern Japan. Two weeks afterwards, in the midst of the chaos and uncertainty surrounding the recovery and the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear reactor, a group of four filmmakers traveled north from Tokyo on a road trip to document first hand the immediate aftermath of one of Japan’s worst peacetime disasters.

This screening of 311, co-sponsored by the White Rose East Asia Centre and the University of Sheffield, sees one of Japan’s leading independent filmmakers, director Mori Tatsuya, visiting Sheffield for the first time. A Q&A with Mori and Dr Mark Pendleton of the School of East Asian Studies at the University of Sheffield will follow the screening.
