Letters from Iwo Jima – Clint Eastwood (2007)

Sunday 22nd September – 7.30pm

Letters from Iwo Jima is a film directed by Clint Eastwood, which deals with the theme of the battle of Iwo Jima during the Second World War from the point of view of the Japanese army. The director’s previous film, Flags of Our Fathers, considers the same battle from the point of view of American troops. The subject is taken from the novel Picture Letters from Commander in Chief by Tadamichi Kuribayashi. Letters from Iwo Jima and Flags of Our Fathers represent the homage that Eastwood wanted to dedicate to the fallen of both sides. From the struggle remain the letters that had been sent to the families, full of the emotions and families of the combatants.
