The Atomic Artists

The Atomic Artists
Jul. 26, 2011
10 minutes

After the largest recorded earthquake in Japan set off a nuclear disaster, its people are facing a generation-defining moment as they question their lifestyle and dependency on nuclear power. In The Atomic Artists, FRONTLINE journeys with Marco Werman of PRI's The World as he meets Chim↑Pom, a provocative group of young artists making headlines as they use art to challenge the status quo and ask Japanese society to rethink their way of life.

Producer(s): Emily Taguchi
