"Best Wishes for Tomorrow" 『明日への遺言』
Director : Takashi Koizumi
Cast : Makoto Fujita, Sumiko Fuji, Masahiko Nishimura
Wartime past offers lessons for today
The post war trial of Lieutenant General Tasuku Okada, who took
responsibility for ordering the execution of 38 captured US prisoners of
war, after he considered them to be war criminals instead for the war time
firebombing of Nagoya. Okada took full blame for the war crime, in effect,
shielding his subordinates from harsh punishment and earning him wide
respect. The movie seeks to call attention to the unresolved question of
American war crime culpability in the fire and atomic bombings of Japan.
Presented by The Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Waikato,
and The Japan Culture Centre, Sydney (The Japan Foundation).
