The Land of Hope: Border, Evacuation, and Rejection During a Nuclear Crisis

Aurélien Portelli

Résumé

The Land of Hope (2012) is a Japanese film written and directed by Sion Sono. The film focuses on the consequences of setting up an evacuation perimeter following a nuclear accident in the fictitious region of "Nagashima". Sono created this name by mixing three cities: Nagasaki, Hiroshima, and Fukushima. For him, Japan has been irradiated three times. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were respectively destroyed on August 6 and 9, 1945, when the United States dropped nuclear bombs on each of the cities. Then, 66 years later on March 11, 2011, the third major nuclear event occurred at Fukushima Daiichi. During this nuclear crisis, authorities established an evacuation perimeter around the plant, leading to the displacement of neighboring populations.
