UK Premiere: USA
During Japan's surrender at the end of World War II, numerous swords were confiscated by American officers. In order to better understand the past and build a bridge between cultures in the present, a filmmaker attempts to return one of these surrendered swords to its original owner.
Director Brad Bennett says, “The moment a friend told me about his dream of trying to return a WWII Japanese sword, I was on board. This documentary project has been ongoing for the past five years, a true labour of love. Being part Japanese myself (Hafu), I've always been fascinated with Japanese culture and my heritage.” (Some subtitles) Budget $45,000.
