Please watch the trailer to the Sundance Film Festival Award-winning and the 2012 Academy Award Nominated Documentary called “The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom.”
“Survivors in the areas hardest hit by Japan’s recent tsunami find the courage to revive and rebuild as cherry blossom season begins. A stunning visual poem about the ephemeral nature of life and the healing power of Japan’s most beloved flower.”
A word from the creator of the film, Lucy Walker.
“There is no celebration to be had when over 15,000 people died and so many more thousands are missing or displaced. The film is steeped in so much sorrow as it progresses through the stages of shock, loss, grieving through to perseverance and courage and hope, as human beings and nature alike – as expressed by the cherry trees – dig deep and find the way to continue. The film is a testament to the people who had the fortitude and courage to share their stories and their grace, and to our collaborators who worked so hard and so brilliantly to let the voices of these reserved, dignified, resilient people be heard around the world as the first anniversary of March 11th, 2011 approaches. I could not have been more impressed and inspired by the way the survivors in the Tōhoku region are moving forward. This film is dedicated to them.”
The next time the film is available for viewing, we will post a notification!
