About the Film

“This is a place of wonder, like a miracle.” – Midori Takashima

There has been consistent, galvanized resistance to a proposed nuclear power plant in Kaminoseki, Japan. Patagonia grantee and activist Midori Takashima, founder of the Kaminoseki Nature Conservation Association–along with fishermen and farmers who have been actively protesting for 35 years–continues to fight against the proposed construction.

This unique area of Japan’s Inland Sea is a biodiversity hot spot and home to endangered species like the crested murrelet and numerous rare or endemic fish, shellfish and seabirds. In spite of this, the area is at risk from overdevelopment, specifically from the planned construction of the power plant–which would be the first one built since the Fukushima meltdown in 2011. The construction would destroy an ancient way of life and further threaten several endangered species of this potential World Heritage site.
