Join us for a special screening and discussion of Ashes to Honey!
This documentary observes the demonstrators of the Japanese island of Iwaishima and their 28-year struggle against a nuclear power plant on its shores. The islanders’ endeavours are juxtaposed with the situation in Sweden, where the public’s desire for sustainable energy has produced eco-friendly lifestyle choices since 1980.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Aiko Kojima, a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology. Her research investigates food and consumerism in Japan, including the effects of the Fukushima Disaster on foodways.
