Hibakusha is an animated drama featuring Kaz Suyeishi (Karin Anna Cheung), a 57 year old woman, who recalls her most vivid and horrific experiences as a 17 year old Hiroshima student during the morning of August 6, 1945 when the atomic bomb dropped on her hometown.

This film is inspired to bring awareness to the Hiroshima & Nagasaki bombings in hopes that a nuclear tragedy like this will ever happen again. A Q&A with co-directors Steve Nguyen, Choz Belen, actress Karin Anna Cheung, and Kaz Suyeishi will follow the screening.

This project will commemorate the 67th Anniversary of the bombings and is dedicated to the Association of Hiroshima & Nagasaki A-bomb Survivors.

Free with Museum admission. Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
