Film - "3/11 in the Moment"
Japan U.S. Creatives, Japan America Society of Georgia (JASG),and Georgia Institute of Technology's Center for International Business Education and Research (GT CIBER) and the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs will host a free showing of NY-based television journalist Kyoko Gasha's movie 03/11 "In the Moment" which shows how the people of Japan attempt to recover from an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown that, in the span of a few minutes, wipe out family members, towns, and all that were once part of Tohoku.
The film explores if a return to anything resembling 'normal' is even possible as '311: In the Moment' captures the experience of loss on a massive scale by telling very intimate stories of some of the survivors of the March 11 disasters in Northeast Japan. The film shows the power of nature and its ability to completely destroy pieces of civilization, but it also shows the power of human will to overcome and endure horrific disaster.
The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles so both Japanese and English speakers can enjoy.
Following the showing of the film there will be a Q& A session and reception where Ms. Gasha will answer questions about the film and discuss her life as a journalist in New York.
Ms. Gasha, has recorded a video greeting which can be viewed here: http://japanuscreatives.com/video/ga-tech-introduction-03-11-in-the-moment-kyoko-gasha
