2015 NO NUKES Film Festival

No Nukes Film Festival” is a biannual thematic film festival focusing on nuclear that began in 2013. This year the festival has recruited thirteen documentaries related to nuclear energy from all over the world. These films not only transmit abstract knowledge or discourse on nuclear energy, they also record the actual happenings and memories of the damage resulting from the propagation of nuclear energy. Through these films, we learn how people, animals and natural environments are affected by our nuclear-fueled “dream of progress”. We hope that these films will in turn introduce a reflexive stance towards Taiwan’s current nuclear situation, as well as our daily lives that are inevitably related to this issue.


The film festival will take place from July 24th to August 2nd. Aside from setting it up as a no-entry fee event, we have also invited documentary directors from Japan and Australia to give director’s talk after the screenings. In addition, we have also invited people involved in the anti-nuclear movement from other countries to share their experience with us. We aim to promote environmental education and engage public concern about nuclear energy via visual media. Since this is such an enormous project, the budget costs more than what the organizers can cover, so we are now reaching out to you for your support!


While cordially inviting you to attend our film festival, we, the Green Citizen’s Alliance, also appeal for small amounts of donations as a material means to support this event, so that more people can have the chance to watch these valuable films – with the directors’ assent, we plan to have a one-year screening tour aross the country after the premier screenings. We welcome shops, community spaces and schools to register for screening events and share these films with more people. We earnestly invite everyone to participate in the preparation process of the film festival and eat popcorn with us after its launch.


“Anti-nuclear movements in Asia” – screening 6 films


After the 311 nuclear disaster in Japan, a wave of anti-nuclear protests blew across Asia. In Japan, Friday protest gatherings in front of the prime minister's residence persist till this day. India’s dissidence against building new nuclear power plants is catalyzing, and in Miryang, South Korea, violent protests against the construction of electrical power lines designed to distribute nuclear-generated electricity has raised national concern, forcing Seoul to revise its energy policy. Though public attention over the nuclear disaster has gradually diluted as people return to their daily lives, there are still people who continue to fight against the threat of radiation, stigmatization and the lies of the government. The curse of living under the danger of nuclear energy has generated a strength and resilience akin to sprouting sprigs under the chilling November rain.


“From Cradle to Grave” – screening 7 films


From the cradle to the grave, the nuclear industry has affected every aspect of our lives. Human DNA is not the sole victim of radiation; be it the Australian aborigines who were forced to leave their homeland due to uranium mining, or the villagers on the southern pacific island Tureia, who suffered the aftermath of Frances’ nuclear bomb testing, radiation had infiltrated environments, ecologies, cultures and economies. This trauma passes from generation to generation; it is past history, but it is also happening in the present. The radioactive material our generation produces will also become the future tense for the next hundreds – even hundred thousands – years to come.
