Director Emiko Hiramatsu tells the heart-warming untold true story of a group of teachers who evacuated their infant students from a burning Tokyo at the end of WWII.

While the threat of bombing looms, music – and an organ they brought with them – brings solace during a terrifying time. Organ explores the power of music in times of hardship.

Screening as part of The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020 - Happiness is a State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema. 

Organised by the Japan Foundation with Major Support from Japan Airlines, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, and Yakult, with Sponsorship in Kind from SUQQU, and in Cultural Partnership with Modern Culture.
