She will be visiting Brandeis University, Dartmouth College, Tufts University and Wellesley College.

March 9th, 2018 marks the seventh anniversary of the world’s second worst nuclear disaster in Fukushima, where a nuclear plant was crippled by a devastating earthquake and tsunami. Having traveled all over Japan some 25 times, Dörrie is fascinated by Japanese aesthetics, social dynamics and culture and has set other films in Japan. She travelled to the Fukushima only six months after the catastrophe and then returned five years later to shoot Fukushima, Mon Amour right in the middle of Fukushima’s Exclusion Zone.
