The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom
Summary: Nominated for a 2012 Academy Award(R) for Best Documentary Short, this film looks at Japan's unique love affair with the cherry blossom--a symbol of hope and renewal--and its impact in the wake of the devastating 2011 tsunami. Capturing some of the post-tsunami experiences in the hardest-hit areas, director Lucy Walker follows survivors who found the courage to revive and rebuild during cherry-blossom season, which began within weeks of the tragedy. The result is a stunning visual poem about the healing power of Japan's most beloved flower as the country rebuilds. (TVPG) (NA)
