Hibakusha, Our Life To Live

The film is about the stories of Japanese, Korean, and American hibakusha. Their stories are linked to the relationship between Eiji Nakanishi (the youngest survivor of Hiroshima) and his little friend, Yoko, an eight year old girl he teaches to play the guitar. Little by little she learns about Eiji's hibakusha experience. She becomes intrigued by colorful pictures and drawings made by the survivors. "Will Eiji take me to the Peace Festival in Hiroshima?"

The film was shown at the United Nations on 19 May 2010 during the 2010 NPT Review Conference.
