Documentary Film “8:15 Hiroshima | From Father To Daughter” First Global Online Screening Free Event (August 6-9) For The 77th Anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Following the national theater roadshow in the summer of 2021, a special free distribution will be decided from the United States to the entire world to coincide with the 77th anniversary of the atomic bomb anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki this summer and the 1st NPT Review Conference!

8:15 Hiroshima’s timely global screening will occur during the month of the First Non-
Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference being held at the United Nations – and amidst the
heightened potential for nuclear war.
8:15 Hiroshima, was produced by Akiko Mikamo, the daughter of a hibakusha (nuclear bomb
survivor), to illustrate her father’s remarkable true story, message for peace and vision for a world without
nuclear weapons.
“My father told me, ‘I don’t want anybody else to ever have to go through the agony of
another nuclear war,’ and asked me to spread his message to younger generations throughout the
world,” said Dr. Akiko Mikamo, Executive Producer of 8:15 Hiroshima and Author of 8:15 – A True
Story of Survival and Forgiveness from Hiroshima. https://815hiroshima.com

The world is closer to the use of nuclear weapons out of desperation—or by accident or
miscalculation—than at any time since the early 1980s. As Russian President Putin has ordered his
nation’s nuclear forces to go on heightened alert, the West has been warned that any interference with the
invasion of Ukraine would have ‘consequences that you have never experienced in your history.’
Suddenly, the unthinkable seems possible again.

On August 6, 1945, her daughter Mikamo Akiko (Mikamo Akiko) carefully listened to the spectacular experience of her father, Shinji, who was exposed to the world’s first atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on the roof of his house at close range, over a long period of time Taken and made into a book in English in 2013.
In 2014, he published the Japanese version of “8:15: A Heart to Survive in Hiroshima and Forgive” (Kodansha Editorial). In 2020, as an executive producer, he made a movie with an American film production team in their 30s in a tebento.
“8:15 Hiroshima From Father to Daughter” does not loudly appeal only the stupidity of war and the cruelty of the atomic bomb, but the feelings of a father who did not give up on living even in that hellish situation, and part 40 We will unravel an important message for achieving world peace, derived from an incident that occurred a year later and firmly passed down from father to daughter.
Worldwide acclaim, such as winning the Nashville Film Festival 2020 Audience Award, is also high, and preparations for a Hollywood film adaptation are underway.
