    Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard

    Discover the incredibly touching story of some of the children who survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and how their drawings, created as a simple gesture of peace, have resonated for a lifetime.

    ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

    Bryan Reichhardt

    Bryan Reichhardt is an award-winning filmmaker drawn to compelling stories about cultural connection. Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard is his third feature-length documentary film.

    FILM SYNOPSIS

    Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard is a documentary focused around a set of old Japanese children’s drawings found in the closet of a member of All Souls Church in Washington, DC in 1995. Current parishioners unearth the dramatic story behind the drawings and discover that they were drawn in 1947 by students of a school less than a half-mile from where the first atomic bomb in history was detonated. The children who made them (now in their late 70s) reflect on their early lives amidst the rubble of their decimated city and the hope they shared through their art. The pictures are restored and taken back to Japan where they are reunited with the artists and exhibited in the very building where they were created.

    “We just drew what we wanted to express to say thank you for the kindness.”
