Japan U.S. Creatives, Japan America Society of Georgia (JASG) and The Sumiko Takahara Japan Studies Program at Spelman College will host a free showing of NY-based television journalist Kyoko Gasha's movie 03/11 "In the Moment" which shows how the people of Japan attempt to recover from an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown that, in the span of a few minutes, wipe out family members, towns, and all that were once part of Tohoku.
The film explores if a return to anything resembling 'normal' is even possible as '311: In the Moment' captures the experience of loss on a massive scale by telling very intimate stories of some of the survivors of the March 11 disasters in Northeast Japan. The film shows the power of nature and its ability to completely destroy pieces of civilization, but it also shows the power of human will to overcome and endure horrific disaster.
The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles so both Japanese and English speakers can enjoy.
Following the showing of the film there will be a Q& A session and reception where Ms. Gasha will answer questions about the film and discuss her life as a journalist in New York.
Please see a video greeting by Ms. Gasha to the Spelman College community discussing her movie.
This is a rare opportunity to see a great movie about Japan and meet a well-respected film maker and journalist.
Since attendance is limited please RSVP for free and we look forward to seeing you there.
There is plenty of parking in the parking deck of Spelman College for $3.00.
This event is supported in part by a grant from the Japan Foundation.
Community of creative people interested in Japanese and America cultures.
