The Director, Shishido Daisuke was born in 1982. The film, Dogs, Cats & Humans 2: The Tohoku Earthquake for Animals, serves as his debut in feature length documentary work.
Born and raised in the Miyagi Prefecture in Japan, Daisuke returned back to his deserted hometown after the devastating Fukushima disaster had destroyed much of the Japanese Coast. Undeterred by the risks of radiation poisoning and future tremors, he spent more than 600 days filming starving, displaced animals in affected areas, as well as the volunteer workers who sneak into restricted areas to aid these creatures. Through effective use of his camera lens, Daisuke invites us to join him in venturing into the heart of the devastation zone, and to view the aftereffects of this disaster through the eyes of the animals that were left behind.
