Osaka International Peace Center’s Peace Memorial Event for the Anniversary of the Start of the Pacific War Special Day for Peace Cinema – Christmas and War

 The Osaka International Peace Center (Peace Osaka) is a museum dedicated to handing down the memories of the Osaka air raids for the pursuit of peace. Each year, we screen a movie to reflect on the tragedy of war and the value of peace in the month of December when the Pacific War started.
 This year, we have chosen Joyeux Noel for the theme of Christmas and war.
Screening date & time
Sunday, December 4, 2016, from 13:30 to 15:30
About the movie
Joyeux Noel (117 minutes)
(2005/Color; Jointly produced by France, Germany and UK; Japanese subtitles)
The movie is set during World War I, in Delsaux, on the front lines in northern France. A miraculous Christmas truce emerged here on the first Christmas Eve after the start of the war as Christmas carol singing spurred soldiers on both sides to approach each other to exchange presents, bury the dead together, take photos, and play a friendly soccer match.
Director: Christian Carion
