Thanks to your votes, the doc about the cleanup of the recent earthquake, "Surviving Japan
" won this weekend's Project of the Week contest.
Congratulations to director Chris Noland! The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.
Here's what the project's about:
Inside story of 2011 Japanese Tsunami relief & nuclear crisis.
A critical look at how the authorities handled the nuclear crisis and Tsunami relief by an American who volunteered in the clean-up.
It is in short, a documentary of the devastating events in Japan and the after-math that followed. It features true stories from those affected by the disaster, the government and even TEPCO. It highlights the struggle in dealing with: The Tsunami clean-up, lack of Government response to the disaster, radiation plus the future of nuclear power after the accident, a possible Cover-up of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear disaster.
Four more Projects of the Day coming this week, with the next vote on Friday. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
