A DOCTOR'S SWORD + Q&A

Dir: Gary Lennon
Ireland / Japan / 2015 / 70mins

Dr. Aidan MacCarthy stands as one of the most incredible survivors of WorldWar II. He survived Dunkirk and the fall of Singapore; he spent four years as a POW and was just a few hundred metres from the atomic bomb in Nagasaki.

From the ashes of Nagasaki MacCarthy was given a sword by a Japanese officer but its provenance was shrouded in mystery. Going to Japan, Aidan’s daughter Niki attempts to find this Japanese officer that gave MacCarthy his ancestral sword. On her journey Niki discovers much more about her father, his remarkable story and the war from both the Allied and Japanese sides.

Recreated through animation this is a story of survival, forgiveness and how humanity can scale the highest heights.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Gary Lennon and Producer Bob Jackson.
