Spread the word: Hitomi Kamanaka is coming to Montréal!
As we’ve been announcing for several weeks now, documentary filmmaker and anti-nuclear activist Hitomi Kamanaka (pictured to the left) will soon be in Montréal to screen and discuss two of her films, Hibakusha at the End of the World (in Arabic, English, and Japanese with English narration and subtitles) and Ashes to Honey (in Japanese with English and French subtitles). Julie Blandeau, one of our treasured project east306 contributors, is working on the French subtitles for Ashes to Honey! Thanks, Julie! If you haven’t already done so, please check out this short interview with Ms. Kamanaka (introduced and translated by Norma Field).
On Tuesday, May 24, we will screen Hibakusha at the End of the World (2003). After the film, the audience will have the chance to discuss the film with Ms. Kamanaka. (English)
On Wednesday, May 25, we will host the Canadian premiere of Ashes to Honey (2010), and this screening will also be followed by a discussion with Ms. Kamanaka. (English and French)
Both events will take place on the campus of McGill University in the Leacock Building, Room 219 starting at 6pm.
Both events are free, and everyone is welcome!
