"Day of the Western Sunrise" Rough Cut Screening (75 minutes) in Japanese with English Subtitles.
Keith Reimink is screening a rough cut of his new feature-length documentary "Day of the Western Sunrise."
"Day of the Western Sunrise," tells of a real-life story the Japanese tuna trawler Daigo Fukuryu Maru, or the Lucky Dragon No. 5, and it's 23 man crew. On March 1st, 1954, the fishermen onboard the Lucky Dragon survived the biggest explosion ever caused by man, the Castle Bravo thermonuclear test in the Pacific Ocean. That's just the start of the story. Through survivor interviews and beautiful animation, the film tells how their lives were forever changed while showing the long-term impact of this devastating event.
In 2015 Keith traveled to Japan to interview the surviving crew members of the Lucky Dragon, their families, and to visit their fishing village.
