Description

(Isamu Hirabayashi, Japan, 7 min.)  A Japanese 66 year cicada emerges during the recent post-tsumani nuclear fallout, after being dormant since the Hirohsima and Nagasake bombs were dropped. The title looks like a code, but it is actually a collection of significant numbers.  The Fukushima disaster occurred 66 years after the dropping of the atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  3/11 marks the date of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and 4 are the number of reactors that were damaged at Fukushima.
