The Otolith Group
The Radiant
2012
Length: 64 min 14 s

The Radiant explores the impact of 11 March 2011, when the Tohoku earthquake generated a tsunami on the west coast of Japan, killing thousands of people and causing a partial collapse of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Constructed from historical footage and recordings made in 2011, the film focuses on the promises of the advent of nuclear energy and the real danger of radioactivity. With a soundtrack reminiscent of New Wave science fiction films, The Radiant creates the climate of an invisible yet inordinately damaging threat.
