Today, the award-winning film Ikkatsu: The Roadless Coast available for
viewing to the public. This is about a kayaking trip that documented the
Japanese Tsunami debris along the Washington coast. Here’s the blurb from
In March of 2011 Japan suffered a devastating earthquake followed by a
series of equally devastating tsunamis. As the waters receded, an estimated
1.5 million tons of debris was washed back into the Pacific – all of which
was destined to land on distant shores.
In the summer of 2012 three professional kayakers, supported by a staff of
mainstream scientists started an unprecedented journey; paddle the roadless
coast of Washington to survey the debris on some of the wildest shoreline
and ultimately to bring back their data for the scientific community.
This award-winning film documents their journey (Winner Best Environmental
