Less than 9 miles off of Japan’s coast is Kunashiri, one of the two main islands of the Kuril Islands archipelago. Following the defeat of Imperial Japan in World War II, Kunashiri was annexed by the Soviet Union. A year later, after a short period of cohabitation, the 17,000 Japanese living on this island were all deported. Even though 75 years have passed since the War’s end, there’s still no official peace agreement between the two countries.
This film was made with the participation of Vià Vosges, with support from the New Aquitaine Region, in partnership with the CNC, the Occitania Pyrenees-Mediterranean Region, PROCIREP-Producers' Society and ANGOA, and the Documentary School of Lussas (Ardèche Image). This film collaborated with the CNC's Audiovisual Innovation Fund, and also had support from Pictanovo.
