DisOrient 2016 Centerpiece Film - Persona Non Grata - The Chiune Sugihara Story
Persona Non Grata - The Chiune Sugihara Story (2015) 139 min.  - English, Japanese    USA, Japan, Poland

Directed by Cellin Gluck, Produced by Kazutoshi Wadakura and Cine Bazaar, Screenplay by Tetsurô Kamata, Hiromichi Matsuo
 

Starring Toshiaki Karasawa, Koyuki, Borys Szyc

The story of a Japanese diplomat, sometimes called the Schindler of Japan, and his life lading up to and after his decision to issue over 2,000 visas to Jewish refugees in Kaunas, Lithuania resulting in saving the lives of over 6,000 people.

This is the story of a man who believed in doing all he could do for the benefit of his beloved Japan, including trying to keep her from becoming embroiled in a worldwide conflict he saw as inevitable.

Along the way, he came face to face with the plight of the European Jews as they tried to escape the onslaught of the Nazi's and the rapidly advancing German army.

Caught between the unbending policies of his country now bound by treaty with Nazi Germany and his awakening moral responsibilities, we follow his life from his early days in Manchuria to his eventual posting in Lithuania and his appointment with destiny which would forever brand him a hero.

Q&A with Director Cellin Gluck and Director of Photography Garry Waller immediately following the screening.
