This beautifully made documentary investigates children's experiences of the Japanese tsunami and nuclear disaster. It will be of real interest to anyone who works in the field of child-centred disaster risk reduction. The children articulate their experiences with great insight and in doing so, they further challenge the notion that children are passive victims of disaster who must rely on adults to speak for them. Of particular interest, is the children's desire to take what they have learned from the disaster to help others and prevent future harm.  

 

For Australian viewers, the documentary is available in its entirety on on ABC iview
