The Great March Eleventh (3.11) Tsunami:
Remembering for the Future

2015.02.14 - 2015.02.18 10:00 - 18:00
Japanese (English)

This unique 3D documentary movie is the first of its kind, unveiling previously untold personal stories, and exploring the humble but resolute spirit of those who inhabit this disaster-prone region of Japan.

This is a story about humankind and tsunami told by remarkable people who, in the face of unparalleled devastation, champion the power of life and hope.

These people feel it is their duty to tell future generations about their personal experience of natural disaster. This new-born courage to speak out, three years after the disaster struck, stems from respect for loved ones lost in the 2011 giant tsunami, and recognition that their own miraculous survival was often determined by bizarre coincidence, or just a few seconds or centimeters.
