Film Twice Bombed Tsutomu Yamaguchi

“Twice Bombed, Twice Survived” directed by Hidetaka Inazuka  (70 min)

Mr. Hidetaka Inazuka, the producer and director of “Twice Bomb, Twice Survived,”  will appear in person at the screening on Nov 12, 13, 14

“Twice Bombed, Twice Survived,” a thought-provoking documentary about Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only person to have been officially recognized by the Japanese government for surviving both Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb explosions.

When 60 years passed after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Yamaguchi became 90-year-old. He already lost his son because of atomic bomb-related sickness.

Yamaguchi had decided to deliver his testimony to the United Nations, and people in the world. His motto was “One for All, All for One.” Just before his death, Yamaguchi convinced himself “I have done my duty” because Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron promised him to make a film about atomic bomb survivors.

The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on Aug. 6 and 9, 1945 killed more than 210,000 people and exposed many others to radiation.

Along with Yamaguchi, seven other twice-bombed, twice-survived people also recount their experiences in the film.
