Samurai in the Oregon Sky with Ilana Sol, May 7, 2021
Filmmaker Ilana Sol presents her movie, Samurai in the Oregon Sky, and joins for a post-viewing question and answer session with LOPL librarian Todd Feinman, Pat Ginn from Respond to Racism and Greg Oberst who is in the film.
In 1942, Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita catapulted his seaplane off of a submarine, flew over the Oregon coast, and became the only pilot to bomb the U.S. mainland during WWII. He never dreamed he would one day be invited back to the region, where he would begin a lifelong friendship with the people of a small Oregon town. SAMURAI IN THE OREGON SKY chronicles how Mr. Fujita came to refer to his former target as his “second home.”
