Event Details

The Hot Springs (AR) /Hanamaki (JP) Sister City Foundation is sponsoring this film screening, which will be followed by a discussion by historians on the subject about the relationship between the United States and Japan.

Film description: In 1942, Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita catapulted his seaplane off of a submarine, flew over the Oregon coast, and became the only pilot to bomb the U.S. mainland during WWII.  He never dreamed he would one day be invited back to the region, where he would begin a lifelong friendship with the people of a small Oregon town.  Samurai in the Oregon Sky chronicles how Mr. Fujita came to refer to his former target as his second home.

This film was directed by Ilana Sol.
