Library Colloquia Series

Hiroshima Nagasaki Download, a documentary film directed by Shinpei Takeda

Tuesday, October 11
Main Library, North Conference Room (4 West), 7:00pm

Co-sponsored by Lyman Briggs College and the Asian Studies Center
Speaker: Filmmaker Shinpei Takeda
Presenter: Naoko Wake, Lyman Briggs College

They are survivors of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They are also Americans living in what was formerly called the 'enemy state,' the country that dropped the bombs. How do we understand their stories? Hiroshima Nagasaki Download, a documentary film based on interviews with Japanese-American survivors, urges us to think about the complex stories of people who crossed national and cultural boundaries in the Nuclear Age. Director Shinpei Takeda will lead a post-film discussion.

Shinpei Takeda is a Japan-born filmmaker, visual artist and musician based in Tijuana, Mexico who has followed atomic bomb survivors in North and South America for the last five years.

Naoko Wake is Visiting Assistant Professor in the Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University. She is the author of "Gender and Science in Hiroshima's Aftermath: A Cross-cultural Approach", published in Endeavour.
