Children Of Hiroshima
Children of Hiroshima
Hiroshima
(原爆の子, Genbaku no Ko, lit. "Children of the Atomic Bomb") also released as Atom-Bombed Children in Hiroshima,[1] is a 1952 Japanese feature film directed by Kaneto Shindo, a docudrama made with extreme emotions, having "the capacity to wound". One may reasonably admit that fiction and documentary exist in equal parts in this film and that is why it may be considered a docufiction as well, an evidence that underlies the inseparable ethical and aesthetic motivations that gave rise to this film.[2][3][4] It was entered into the 1953 Cannes Film Festival.[5]Contents1 Plot 2 Cast 3 Reception 4 See also 5 References 6 External linksPlot[edit] Takako Ishikawa (Nobuko Otowa) is a teacher on an island in the inland sea off the coast of Hiroshima

Japanese Language
Japanese (日本語, Nihongo, [ɲihoŋɡo] or [ɲihoŋŋo] ( listen)) is an East Asian language spoken by about 126 million people, primarily in Japan, where it is the national language. It is a member of the Japonic (or Japanese-Ryukyuan) language family, and its relation to other languages, such as Korean, is debated. Japanese has been grouped with language families such as Ainu, Austroasiatic, and the now-discredited Altaic, but none of these proposals has gained widespread acceptance. Little is known of the language's prehistory, or when it first appeared in Japan. Chinese documents from the 3rd century recorded a few Japanese words, but substantial texts did not appear until the 8th century. During the Heian period

to write the Japanese language. It is used by most foreigners learning to spell Japanese in the Latin alphabet[2] and by the Japanese for romanizing personal names, geographical locations, and other information such as train tables, road signs, and official communications with foreign countries.[3] Largely based on English writing conventions, consonants closely correspond to the English pronunciation and vowels approximate the Italian pronunciation.[1] The Hepburn style (Hebon-shiki) was developed in the late 19th century by an international commission that was formed to develop a unified system of romanization

Docufiction
Docufiction
Docufiction
(or docu-fiction), often confused with docudrama, is the cinematographic combination of documentary and fiction, this term often meaning narrative film.[1] It is a film genre[2] which attempts to capture reality such as it is (as direct cinema or cinéma vérité) and which simultaneously introduces unreal elements or fictional situations in narrative in order to strengthen the representation of reality using some kind of artistic expression.[3] More precisely, it is a documentary mixed with fictional elements,[4] in real time, filmed when the events take place, and in which the main character or characters — often portrayed by non-professional or amateur actors — are essentially playing themselves, or slightly fictionalized versions of themselves, in a fictionalized scenario

A feature film is a film (also called a motion picture, movie, or just film) with a running time long enough to be considered the principal or sole film to fill a program.

Institute, and the British Film

Institute, a feature film runs for at least 40 minutes, while the Screen Actors Guild

Fiction
Fiction
Fiction
is a story or setting that is derived from imagination—in other words, not based strictly on history or fact.[1][2][3] Fiction can be expressed in a variety of formats, including writings, live performances, films, television programs, animations, video games, and role-playing games, though the term originally and most commonly refers to the narrative forms of literature (see literary fiction),[4] including novels, novellas, short stories, and plays. Fiction
Fiction
is occasionally used in its narrowest sense to mean simply any "literary narrative".[5] A work of fiction is an act of creative imagination, so its total faithfulness to the real-world is not typically assumed by its audience.[6] Therefore, fiction is not commonly expected to present only characters who are actual people or descriptions that are factually accurate
