Paper Lanterns tells the story of Mori Shigeaki, a Hiroshima-based historian who as a child of seven experienced the atomic bomb, and his lifelong calling to tell the story of not only the many Japanese victims of the bombing of Hiroshima, but of 12 American prisoners of war who were also killed in it. The film shows how the war impacted families in both countries, and how one man can rise above the hatred of war and heal the wounds of those terrible days.
Please kindly note that this event consists of remarks by the director Barry Frechette and a film screening only. There is no talk and Q&A session at this event.
