Sennan Asbestos Disaster

Sennan Asbestos Disaster ★★★★½

This doc is very long. Perhaps too long in multiple places. But that's really the only possible gripe I can think of. Despite the length it's very well-paced and organized. It depicts this very tragic asbestos problem which still causes people to suffer in Japan, but more importantly, it shows just how useless the government is. Even though the victims and their families are not complete saints, which Hara takes care to depict so there is no complete bias, the Japanese government does everything in their power to try and get out of paying any sum of money, hoping the victims will simply die before the trial happens. No government official can seem to act human let alone compassionate. Just robotic and fake, right up to the end.
