Message From Hiroshima will be released by Cinema Libre Studio on August 4, 2015. However, in light of the upcoming 70th Anniversary of the atomic bombing, Cinema Libre has made the film available in advance to be shown by select non-profit organizations, including American Friends Service Committee.

Synopsis: Narrated by George Takei, Message From Hiroshima provides an inside look at life and culture in the city before the first atomic bomb was deployed. Today, where the Hon and Motoyasu rivers meet, stands the Peace Memorial Park - the former location of the Nakajima district, which once was home to thousands of people and hundreds of businesses. When the atomic bomb was detonated 2,000 feet above Hiroshima's city center on August 6, 1945, all of that vanished. Seventy years later, director Masaaki Tanabe makes it his mission to revive the memory of what once was by interviewing hibakusha (survivors) and former residents. These heart-wrenching testimonials, along with computer-generated recreations of restaurants, shoe stores, cinemas, and the famous Industrial Promotion Hall, takes us deep into the hustle and bustle of a lost culture and people.
