Le monde d'après : on a tout vu à Fukushima
The World After Fukushima
A derisory dosimeter erected at crossroads and devices around children's necks serve as a constant reminder of the invisible monster and the deadly particles people are trying to absorb by placing bottles of water on their windowsills. In the region of Fukushima, two years on, the life or at least the "existence" of the local people carries on, as radioactive pollution now forms part of day-to-day living. In addition to the earthquake and the tsunami, the nuclear catastrophe has brought to light the gaping cracks in the system and its criminal arrogance. People recall with horror the series of errors and procrastinations that sealed their fate, with politicians preferring to "play down the situation instead of reducing risks".
