Fukushima documentary A2 had possibly NO media coverage after press conference of Foreign Correspondents’ Club

On 7/10/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “[Strategy shift ?] JP major companies sponsor European film fes to award honest Fukushima documentary “A2″” [URL]

From the interview of Fukushima Diary with the film director Mr. Ian Thomas Ash, none of the media companies covered the film and winning the award.

On 5/13/2013, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan held a press conference for the documentary A2.

They had screening, Q&A section and the speech for 2 hours and 88 people including media related people attended.

The former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland Mr. Mitsuhei Murata attended as well. The Q&A section was led by Japanese journalist Tetsuo Jimbo.

Nearly one month later, the film won Nippon vision award.

However, as long as the film director Mr. Ian Thomas Ash is informed, none of the press who attended the conference made an article to cover the movie nor winning the award.

Le documentaire A2 sur Fukushima n’aura sans doute AUCUNE couverture médiatique après la conférence de presse du Club des Correspondants Étrangers


Le 10 juillet 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait [Changement de stratégie ?] Des grandes sociétés japonaises sponsorisent un festival cinématographique européen qui prime un documentaire honnête sur Fukushima, “A2″

De l’interview du Fukushima Diary avec le directeur du film, M. Ian Thomas Ash, aucunes des sociétés de presse n’a couvert le film et le prix gagné.
Le 13 mai 2013, le Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan avait tenu une conférence de presse sur le documentaire A2.
Ils avaient fait des projections, tenu une séance de questions-réponses et de prises de parole pendant 2 heures et 88 personnes, dont des gens des médias, y étaient présents.
L’ancien ambassadeur du Japon en Suisse, M. Mitsuhei Murata, y était aussi. La section Questions/Réponse était dirigée par le journaliste japonais Tetsuo Jimbo.
Le film a reçu le prix de Nippon vision environ un mois plus tard.
Or, pour autant que le directeur du film, M. Ian Thomas Ash, le sache, aucun des journalistes présents à la conférence n’a fait d’article pour couvrir le documentaire, ni sur le gagnant du prix.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
