Films Changing the World: Must-see docs exploring new issues and transforming the way we see the world.
The depths of the Pacific Ocean holds incredible things, including an estimated 25 million tons of what was torn from the earth in the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Soon after Japan's cataclysmic natural disaster which took around 15,000 lives, wreckage from the event began to pop up on the other side of the world. Fragments of coastal towns, fishing communities and rural villages are appearing on North America’s shores. Government officials, scientists and beachcombers alike are coming together to track and collect all that was lost, and return those items to their original owners. An ocean apart, strangers come together to salvage memories amidst the debris in this stirring Hot Docs Forum alumnus.
Directors Nicolina Lanni and John Choi will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
Co-presented by Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival.
