poster, On Paper Wings
Garden Home Community Library is pleased to present "On Paper Wings", March 3rd at 7 PM. On Paper Wings is a documentary film about the lives of the Japanese and American civilians who were affected by the balloon bomb project, and how they all came together forty years after the end of the war.

In the spring of 1945, a Japanese balloon bomb claimed the lives of the only people killed on the continental U.S. as the result of enemy action during WWII.

Forty years later, the decision to fold a thousand paper cranes would unite the Japanese and American civilians who were involved in and affected by this incident.

The film has been screening, and garnering Best ofs, at many film festivals. The filmmaker Ilana Sol will be at Garden Home for the screening.

The screening takes place at 7pm. Garden Home Community Library is located at 7475 SW Oleson Rd., just north of Garden Home Road.
