For the next “Reel Talk” film series at 6:30 p.m. April 9, the social-justice film “A2-B-C” will be shown, which follows the fallout of the Fukishima nuclear meltdown in Japan. The film will be played in the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center’s Ubuntu Room.
Eighteen months after the nuclear meltdown, children in Fukishima are suffering from severe nosebleeds and developing skin rashes, thyroid cysts and nodules. Citing a lack of transparency in the official medical testing of their children and the ineffectiveness of the decontamination of their homes and schools, the children’s mothers take radiation monitoring into their own hands.
An open discussion with director Ian Thomas Ash will follow the film screening.
