Flashes of Hope: Hibakusha Traveling the World| 1hr
Director: ERIKA BAGNARELLO | Producer: KAWASAKI SAN
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: Costa Rica
The film captures the voices of 102 victims of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. The film is about human resilience and the determination of the Hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors) to deliver a message of hope. The voyage was meant for the atomic bomb survivors to pass along their stories, memories, suffering and hope for the future through interaction with people they met at each stop, such as activists, politicians and ordinary citizens. The Hibakusha tell the world about the tragedies that took place 64 years ago in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to protect others--regardless of their nationality--from ever having to experience the same horrors they faced.
