Inside the Tsunami Synopsis: On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9 earthquake struck the northern coast of Japan, triggering tsunamis of up to 40 meters. Inside the Tsunami investigates what happened in Kamaishi, where residents were overwhelmed by the tsunami that traveled far inland, taking the lives of over 1,000 people.
 
 
Based on firsthand accounts of survivors who were actually caught up in the enormous tidal wave, the program analyzes the behavior and mechanics of the tsunami. By utilizing harrowing home-video footage and Hollywood-style CGI with the use of a supercomputer, Inside the Tsunami attempts to recreate the tsunami, to allow viewers to experience what the people went through.
 
Their stories provide lessons on how we should all act in the face of life-threatening disasters.
 
The March 11 Disaster: 7 Years on Reviving the Fisheries: 7 years ago, a huge earthquake hit the Tohoku region of northeastern Japan. The fishery industry sustained heavy damage from the quake and the tsunami that followed. Reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant led to the spread of radiation. People became nervous about the safety of seafood.
 
We followed the 7-year-long journey of the locals striving to overcome various challenges, including a fisherman trying to regain consumers' trust and business owners trying to expand overseas.
------------------------------------------
We encourage you to come with a friend(s) for these screenings.
