All the latest news from the Romford Film Festival
IMPHAL 1944 was inspired by the true story of a Japanese war veteran who travelled to London seeking reconciliation and peace with his old enemy.
It is an unusual heart-warming drama based on the life of Mr. Hirakubo and the Battle of Imphal, which touches peoples’ hearts. The story concentrates on the beginning of his reconciliation work and uses some metaphors to express the meaning of life and the futility of war. It ends with the theme song “Memories of Imphal”, which seeks a connection between the three countries involved in this battle.
Is it possible to find a way to forgive one's foe after such a long time?
The film was set in both London and India but was shot entirely in London. This film was made for the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Imphal and dedicated to all who lost their lives in the war.
