We Are All Radioactive: Chapter 2

More

"To some extent, everyone is shouldering emotional scars. Some people show it on the surface; some don't," a fisherman explains in the second chapter of We Are All Radioactive. "These days we have all this medicine and psychologists but in the old days, people just moved on. Why can't people do that now?" he muses. The crowd-funded documentary series looks at how a fishing community in Japan has coped in the wake of the 2011 tsunami. Lisa Katayama, who produced the project alongside Jason Wishnow, discusses the making of the series in an interview with the Atlantic Video channel here, where you can also find the trailer for the series.
