講演題目: Screening of Documentary “Fall Seven Times, Get Up Eight” and Discussion
講演者略歴:           Lucy Craft, a freelance reporter and producer based in Tokyo, has contributed news items and feature stories to America’s CBS and NPR. She will speak to us about a film that she co-directed with two colleagues who shared her background of having Japanese mothers who were “war brides,” that is, who married American soldiers after the Second World War ended and moved to the United States to start a new life in a strange, unfamiliar land.
          The short documentary film about the experiences of their mothers, “Fall Seven Times, Get Up Eight: The Japanese War Brides,” will be shown in its entirety and Lucy Craft will speak about the making of the film and why she felt that it was important for the story to be told. There will be some opportunities for group discussion and the talk will be followed by Q & A. Originally from Washington, D.C., Lucy Craft’s curiosity about how her Japanese mother ended up with a Jewish man from the Bronx, led her to retrace her roots to Tokyo, where she eventually settled in her mother’s old neighborhood of Suginami.
