Two weeks after March 11, four men in a RV vehicle were driving around the disaster-stricken areas: Yasuoka Takaharu, Watai Takeharu, Matsubayashi Youju, and Mori Tatsuya. The four were all documentary filmmakers. Normally, it is rare to see four documentary directors working together. It was an unusual situation brought about by an unprecedented earthquake of magnitude 9. For Mori, it had been a while since he took a camera in hand. In spite of his experienced career, he found his conscience bothering him, particularly with regards the filming of the suffering.
I want to depict the scale of this immense disaster. During the filming of this project, I continued to struggle with my conscience in directing the camera lenses onto the survivors, the bereaved, and their sorrow and despair -- the meaning of the act of filming. Of course there is no answer to this question, but I am resolved that I must continue to think deeply upon it.
