The People Living in Hadenya

The People Living in Hadenya

134min/color
Director: Kazuki Agatsuma

 

* with English subtitle

Hadenya is a hamlet located in Minamisanriku Town in Miyagi Prefecture. This is a documentary that earnestly pursued the closely-knit microcosm of the people living with the sea for three years leading up to the 3.11 Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011.
Everyone in the community gathers once a year for the Lion Dance. Families and relatives help each other out in their daily tasks at sea. The director Kazuki Agatsuma, who began shooting as an extension of folkloristics research, condensed the primitive state of coexistence characteristic of a closed community by recording the daily lives of its residents.
