SENNAN ASBESTOS DISASTER
After a documentary portrait of novelist Mitsuharu Inoue and a lone foray into fiction, Hara returns to the activist tradition of The Emperor’s Naked Army for Sennan Asbestos Disaster. Shot over a decade, the documentary follows the dogged efforts of an asbestos-exposed working class community in rural Japan, in their quest to seek recognition and justice from evasive authorities. In the film Hara moves between a mix of direct action protests, meetings with evasive bureaucrats, and intimate portraits of the local residents and activists.
