In recognition of the tragic Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945, JAMsj will host a showing of the animated documentary/drama Hibakusha.
Join Directors Steve Nguyen and Choz Belen as they discuss the making of their animated documentary / drama.
The film centers on Kaz Suyeishi, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, as she recounts her memories of the bombing and its aftermath. Suyeishi was born in Pasadena, California and moved to Japan as a child with her family. She was one of many Japanese Americans who lived in Japan during the war. The film uses a unique animation art style to bring this important story to life and serves as a reminder of the horrors of nuclear warfare and the struggles that the survivors have experienced for decades after the war.
