On Paper Wings, a film by Ilana Sol

By Vice President

Presented by JETAA Portland, The International School, and the Yuuyake Shimbun

In 1945, a Japanese balloon bomb in Bly, Oregon claimed the lives of the only people killed on the continental U.S. as a result of enemy action during WWII.

Forty years later, the decision to fold a thousand paper cranes would unite the Japanese and American civilians who were involved in and affected by this incident.

Please join JETAA and The International School (TIS) in our co-sponsored showing of this moving and revealing award-winning documentary.
