Harvard Club of Japan and Temple University Japan are extremely pleased to co-sponsor a screening of the movie Paper Lanterns with live remarks by the film’s director Barry Frechette and producer Peter Grilli (Harvard AB ‘65 MA '67).
The film tells the little-known story of the twelve American POWs who were killed by the United States’ atomic bomb in Hiroshima in August 1945. It is also the story of Mori Shigeaki, a Hiroshima hibakusha, who was eight years old at the time of the destruction of Hiroshima and who has devoted decades of his life to preserving the legacy of the slain Americans and to creating monuments to their memory. Mori-san is the man whom President Obama embraced so warmly in Hiroshima on May 27 of this year, immediately following the President's historic speech in the Hiroshima Peace Park.
This event will take place on Monday November 7, 2016 at The Parliament, TUJ's new student lounge located on the 1F of Azabu Hall on the Temple University Japan campus at 4-1-27 Mita, Minato-ku. ( http://www.tuj.ac.jp/maps/tokyo.html )

The bilingual English-Japanese language version of the film will be shown.
