HULA GIRLS is a film set in Fukushima prefecture, the site of the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that was heavily damaged during the recent earthquake and tsunami on March 11th.
Based on a true story set in 1965, this heartwarming film is about coal miners’ daughters who took a once-in-a-lifetime chance to escape their monotonous lives, only to become unwitting heroes to their depressed mining town as well as the whole of Japan.
HULA GIRLS was Japan’s official entry to the 2007 Academy Awards Best Foreign Film category and also won four Japanese Academy Awards the same year including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress.
