Remembering Hiroshima, Imagining Peace Presents
In This Corner of the World
Sunday, August 5th
In This Corner of the World is a beautifully animated Japanese film that tells the story of Suzu—a young woman with a vivid imagination and a passion for drawing and painting who is growing up in war-time Hiroshima.
“…it would serve our world leaders, two in particular right now, to watch this before allowing the horror of war to repeat itself.” — RogerEbert.com
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 nuclear bombing of Hiroshima affects Suzu personally.
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.
