Seven films about the tragedies of World War II were included in the program of the film festival, which opened in Japan. Viewers will see historical features and films about the generation that survived the war on the screen. The film festival dedicated to military cinema has been held for eight years, the Pobeda RF website reports.
The mood for this year's screening was set by Kaneto Shindo's Postcard. The film shot by 98-year-old director opened the film forum. It retells the creator's personal memories of the years of World War II, which brought much grief to the Japanese.
The program also includes films about the battle for Okinawa, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and other wartime events. Festival organizer Shiho Mitarai, who lives in Hiroshima Prefecture, is convinced that films can prevent wars and encourage people to learn from the events of 75 years ago.
