Then and NowThis film is about the Tohoku region (hit by the earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan in March 2011), as a reminder as to the ongoing difficulties being faced by the locals attempting to rebuild their towns.

Eight months after the Tsunami, Paul, Ivan and Jeffrey visited a town on the east coast called Ishinomaki (part of which was completely erased by the tsunami) and interviewed a number of residents, each with very different stories and experiences.

Paul Johannessen is an Australian media production creative professional who's living in Tokyo, made this amazingly documented video about the situation in the Ishinomaki city, one of the major affected cities by the March 2011 tsunami.
