"Then and Now"

Having a bad day? Cheer up, things could be worse. Let me show you how...

Then and Now is a short documentary about the 2011 Japanese tsunami. It was directed by Paul Johannessan.
In Ishinomaki, Japan, survivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami reflect on their experiences and tell us about the reconstruction and their hopes for the future.
The film is currently in the running for an award. If you like the film and want to vote for it, click here.

I found this film unconvincing, because there are interviewees telling messages of hope but the interviews are interspersed with images of devastation and one gets the impression they are exceptions to the rule.
I thought something would change by the end but it was the same as the beginning really.
Of course some of the interviews were inspirational. "I try to wake up each morning with courage and hope."
Thanks Henry.
