CineCulture presents ‘Paper Lanterns’ Sept. 22 for World Peace Day

CineCulture presents “Paper Lanterns” at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 22, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium at the Student Recreation Center (5010 N. Woodrow Ave.). “Paper Lanterns,” by director Barry Frechette, depicts the true story of 12 American prisoners of war who were killed in the nuclear attack on Hiroshima during WWII. It recounts the horrors they witnessed, their families’ struggle to find the truth and one Japanese man’s effort to give them the gift of closure through having each of the airmen recognized at the Hiroshima Peace Museum as victims of the atomic blast. The 60-minute film is being screened in commemoration of International Day of World Peace (Sept. 22). It is co-sponsored by the Center for Creativity and the Arts, the Ethics Center, Peace and Conflict Studies and Peace Fresno. Chad Cannon, the film’s composer, will lead the post-screening discussion. All CineCulture events screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays.
