|The Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) in Mountain View presents a special screening of the documentary film, Paper Lanterns.|
On August 6, 1945, the atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima, Japan. Among the estimated 140,000 casualties that day were 12 American prisoners of war. For decades, the families of these 12 Americans were never informed about the fates of their loved ones. Paper Lanterns tells the story of Shigeaki Mori, the man who spent over 35 years tracking down their stories following the end of World War II. Thanks to his tireless efforts, the names of those 12 Americans are now included in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, and their relatives have learned the truth.
This screening is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; please arrive early. Doors open at 7:00pm.
