UPDATE: Due to the weather disruptions director Mujah Maraini-Melehi and writer Deborah Belford de Furia will unfortunately no longer be attending the screening on Sat 3 Mar. 

Mujah Maraini-Melehi has always felt the invisible burden of her family history. In 1938, her grandparents Topazia and Fosco left their native Italy for a new life in Japan. In 1943, they were interned in a civilian prison camp after refusing to sign a document pledging their allegiance to Mussolini’s Republic of Salò. Using diaries, family photos and the testimony of her mother and elderly grandmother, Maraini-Melehi creates a poignant documentary of memories and reflections as she journeys to Japan seeking peace and reconciliation with the past.
