UJP Activist: FRIDAY: "Hibakusha, Our Life to Live", with a Talk by the


Friday, August 5, 2011, 6:30 pm

All Saints Parish • 1773 Beacon St – corner of Corey Rd • Brookline

Boston premiere of the film about the survivors of the atomic bomb attacks on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  The screening will be followed by a talk and Q&A by
the filmmaker, David Rothauser, who is a Brookline resident.   

On August 6, 1945, a great terror was thrust upon the world. David Rothauser’s
80 minute documentary, Hibakusha, Our Life to Live, probes the life stories of
Japanese, Korean and American survivors of the terror; the atomic bomb attacks
on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

There is an URGENCY here. The survivors are dying off, victims of radiation
poisoning and other a-bomb related diseases. It is equally important to tell the
stories on film of people who should never be forgotten. To keep their memory
alive is to make an active contribution to a world where peoples of all races
may embrace life as a precious gift and no longer live in the fear of nuclear

To make this movie, Memory Productions completed over 90 hours of filming,
including interviews with Japanese, Korean and American hibakusha and
international youth participating in the 60th Anniversary Peace Ceremonies in
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Sponsored by All Saints Parish; co-sponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action [1]
