Q&A with director Ian Thomas Ash 

When government scientists declare that a child’s health post-Fukushima is “simply a matter of probability”, it is no wonder that parents are worried, indeed angered. The award-winning A2-B-C (named for the different stages of growth of thyroid cells from harmless cysts to cancer) is one of several documentaries that have come in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima power plant.

The filmcomes from the hands of Ian Thomas Ash, an American-born filmmaker who has lived in Japan for more than a decade. Known online by the handle ‘documentingian,’ Ash went to Fukushima in the immediate aftermath of the catastrophe and made his first film on the disaster:In the Grey Zone

A2-B-C is not a direct follow up, and does not intend to tell all sides of the story, but gives voice to the concerns and frustrations of several families affected by the disaster. The documentary specifically focuses on the people of Date City, located some 37 miles away from the nuclear reactor. Just outside the exclusion zone, the residents of Date were never evacuated and live in fear of the effects – both short and long-term – of radiation on their children. (MGP)
