Hitomi Kamanaka is on her way to Montréal — for Tuesday and Wednesday night screenings and discussions!

May 23, 2011

As we have been announcing for weeks, documentary filmmaker and anti-nuclear activist Hitomi Kamanaka will 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).

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.

Francis Guérin is currently working very hard to complete the French subtitles for Wednesday night’s screening and will create a new DVD version with both English and French subtitles!  Thank you so much, Francis!!!

We also want to thank Akané D’Orangeville for providing French interpreting for Wednesday night’s Q&A!  Thanks so much, Akané!

Both events are free, and everyone is welcome!

This event is sponsored by the Department of East Asian Studies at McGill University.

The poster was designed by Matthew Young.  Thanks, Matthew!  And we also want to thank Miwako Uesaka for all her help with this event too!
