Movie Screening: Samurai in the Oregon Sky
July 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us Friday, July 19, for a special pre-release screening of the new documentary Samurai in the Oregon Sky–which tells the story of Nobuo Fujita and his friendship with the people of Brookings.
Synopsis: In 1942, Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita catapulted his seaplane off of a submarine, flew over the forests of southern Oregon, and conducted the only manned aerial bombings of the United States mainland during WWII. He never dreamed he would one day be invited back to the region, where he would begin a 35-year friendship with the people of a small Oregon town. Samurai in the Oregon Sky tells the story of how Mr. Fujita came to refer to his former target as his “second home.”
Filmmaker Ilana Sol will be in attendance at this special event to greet moviegoers and answer questions. You can learn more about Ilana Sol and this film at https://www.samuraiintheoregonsky.com/
