TOKYO'S BELLY (Germany, 2013, 70 min.)

Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet

Washington, D.C. Premiere Get a glimpse of what goes into feeding and servicing this city of 36 million people by visiting food suppliers and workers and otherwise closed places like water and sewage treatment plants and the 16,000 kilometer-long sewage system. The film shows fishmongers, cooks, sanitation workers and farmers at work and illustrates the Japanese values of ritual, discipline and belonging to a group. Tokyo’s Belly also deals with the loss of trust in Japan’s technical and political elite and with the “anger in the belly” of many Japanese, providing insight into the Fukushima disaster and its aftermath. Written, directed and produced by Reinhild Dettmer-Finke.

Introduced by Sylvia Blume, Program Coordinator, Goethe-Institut Washington.
