Help the Museum of Culture & Environment and Asia and Pacific Studies fold 1,000 paper cranes on November 8th, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. in the Dean Hall lobby. Stay afterwards to watch the film Hibakusha: At the End of the World, directed by Hitomi Kamanaka at 7 p.m. in Dean Hall room 104. This will be followed by a discussion featuring Norma Field, from the University of Chicago, and Tom Bailie, a Washington State farmer featured in the film.
Hibakusha is about the consequences that occur in regards to nuclear warfare as well as the effects that are felt from atmospheric radiation. This topic is explored by viewing the effects through the eyes of the victims. The original term "Hibakusha" referred specifically to the survivors of the atomic bomb, but Kamanaka takes the generations of sufferers who have been appearing around the world.
