Shotlist: Filmmaker's synopsis:

University of Bucharest, Romania, was visited in April 2013 to show japan desk scotland’s first Fukushima documentary, ‘Our friends in Fukushima’, as part of a japan-themed festival run by the Department of japanese Language and Literature. JDS was asked to run a workshop for the Department’s second-year undergraduate students. To their surprise, the workshop was run for two hours entirely in japanese.

A year later, the university was visited again to show JDS’s second Fukushima documentary, ‘100 Bq/Kg, 0.23 µSv/h: The standard of living in Fukushima’, and to interview the students learning japanese language about their favourite japanese phrase.

Their answers form the core of this documentary. Which aspects of japanese cultures are they interested in?
