In This Corner of the World (Japan)Sunday, August 5, 2018 @ 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Join us for a screening of In This Corner of the World, presented by Remembering Hiroshima, Imagining Peace.
In This Corner of the World is a beautifully animated Japanese film that tells the story of Suzu, who at the beginning is a girl with a vivid imagination and a passion for drawing and painting who is growing up in Hiroshima. As an eighteen-year-old during War II, she marries and leaves her home to live in the neighboring city of Kure, with its enormous naval base. As time goes on, the war intrudes more and more on her daily life until the horrific trauma affects Suzu personally. This powerful anti-war film encourages viewers to also reflect on the personal costs of war. Following the film, the audience will have the opportunity to engage in a live video exchange with the Popoki Peace Project and peace activists and students from Japan and Guam.
Remembering Hiroshima, Imagining Peace utilizes education, art and activism to work for the elimination of nuclear weapons. Since the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi plant we have also included events to raise awareness of the dangers of nuclear energy.
