拍過石棉受害者的訴訟之後,紀錄片大師原一男再次以公害病為題,直擊曾經轟動全球的「水俁病」。對外人來說,在60多年的申訴後,窒素公司長期排放水銀所造成的人為災難已經隨着政府敗訴而告一段落。但對很多受害人來說,遲來的道歉是口惠而實不至,1977年的評核準則仍在繼續剝奪許多病人應有的權利。

曾受邀任第三屆「焦點導演」來澳的原一男導演,用鏡頭跟隨受害人和學者超過15年,見證大衛與哥利亞的搏鬥。在日本這個墨守成規的社會中,拒絕妥協是何等難能可貴。

*因片長關係,本片將分三部分放映,觀眾可憑同一門票進場。
* Due to the length of the film, it will be screened in three separate parts. The audience can see all three parts with one ticket.

After chronicling the gut-wrenching fight of victims of the Sennan Asbestos Disaster against the Japanese government, documentary maestro Kazuo Hara tackles an even bigger pollution disaster—the Minamata mercury poisoning. To most outsiders, the Minamata victims’ half-century-long fight has seemingly ended with the high court ruling against the government. Yet their journey is far from over. The lip service from the government does nothing for hundreds (if not thousands) of victims who do not qualify for compensation under the flawed criteria set up by the inflexible authorities.

While many did not live to see this step towards justice, the survivors continue to suffer from long-term effects and struggle with the indifference from those in power.
