Kosai Sekine

Ivan Ivanovych is a farmer who was evacuated from and subsequently returned to his village of Pripyat in 1986. This poetic account sheds light on the Chernobyl disaster and heeds warning to learn from our mistakes.

Kosai Sekine made his debut in 2005 with the short film Right Place, which was recognized at several international film festivals. Since then he has directed several short films, commercials and music videos. His work has garnered numerous awards, including the Cannes Lions Titanium Grand-Prix, a first for a Japanese person.
