Congrats to 'Surviving Japan,' IW's Project of the Week!

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.
