Across the world, the contentious debate over the future of nuclear power continues apace. In East Asia, for instance, it emerged last month that a nuclear plant in Taiwan may have been leaking radio-active water for three years. Meanwhile, Japan is still struggling to contain radio-active water from Fukushima; and in South Korea prosecutors are conducting a huge investigation into forged nuclear safety certificates.
Terracotta Far East Film Festival opened last night with Korean war epic My Way at the Prince Charles Theatre in Chinatown. A pan-Asian production with a star-studded cast from China, Japan and Korea, it was the perfect way to start to the festival.
