Dinner and a Doc, February 12th

We will be screening White Light / Black Rain by Steven Okazaki on February 12th for this month’s Dinner and a Doc. We will be meeting at First Baptist Church, Guelph, which is located at 255 Woolwich Street, eating at 5:30 and beginning the film at about 6:00. Please post a comment or send me an email to let me know if you will be coming and if you would like to bring something to contribute to the meal.

White Light / Black Rain interviews fourteen survivors of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki along with several Americans who witnessed the bombings.  Okazaki selected the interviews from more than one hundred that he conducted and from hundreds of hours of footage.  The result is a moving and deeply personal account of the bombings.

Here are some links for those who would like some further information:

1) an excerpt from the film;
2) an interview with director Okazaki;
3) a review by C. W. Rogers on wsws.org.

Lastly, here are some of the films we will be showing in upcoming months:
March 12th – The Clinton Special by Michael Ondaatje
April 9th – Capturing Reality by Pepita Ferrari
May 14th – Exit Through the Gift Shop by Banksy
