Barry Frechette’s Film Screened at the United Nations

CP’s Director of MKR Studio, Barry Frechette, has a passion for storytelling through film. A screening of his piece, Paper Lanterns, was recently co-hosted by the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs and the Government of Japan. The documentary follows Shigeaki Mori, a survivor of the atomic bombing at Hiroshima, as he searches for and connects with the familes of the American POWs who lost their lives during this bombing. 

It is a moving story about reconciliation and friendship between former enemies, whose lives were forever changed by the disaster. Frechette stresses that regardless of who we are or where we come from, we all can make a difference in the world. It is the smallest of steps that lead to peace.
