75 min

A veteran narrates his memories from World War II when he volunteered for the very first kamikaze operation planned by the Japanese Imperial Army. A stunning personal testimony of a bigger-than-life tale. “When I recall the kamikaze unit, when I call up the memories of that time, everything becomes bright. It’s as if those memories are bathed in light. you understand?” – “When you talk about that light, do you mean the images in your mind are shining?” – “Sometimes I think ‘today it’s my turn.’ I wake up with that idea in my head. And at that moment it’s as though the entire universe is bathed in a dazzling light.”
