Linda Hoaglund, producer and writer, and Risa Morimoto, producer and director (Edgewood Pictures, 2007) The film punctures the myth of the “suicide bombers” of their day. Interviews with surviving Kamikaze pilots, rare battle footage and Japanese propaganda presents a story never before seen in the United States. The film shatters the myth of fanatical Kamikazes dedicated to the sacred and state religious symbols of the Japanese Empire. Risa Morimoto, producer and director and Linda Hoaglund, producer and writer, will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterward.
