Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes Video
directed by George Levinson

Simply Beautiful and Powerfully Moving

“I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world.”
–Sadako Sasaki

Set in 1955, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes is the true story of Sadako Sasaki, a young Japanese girl, on the threshold of adolescence, who developed leukemia from radiation caused by the bombing of Hiroshima. While hospitalized, her closest friend reminded her of the Japanese legend that if she folded a thousand paper cranes, the gods might grant her wish to be well again. With hope and determination, Sadako began folding.

Liv Ullmann vividly tells this poignant story with music performed by George Winston. The action is presented as the camera moves through hundreds of exquisite pastel drawings by Caldecott award-winning artist Ed Young.

Based on the book, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr.

“This film is simply beautiful and powerfully moving. It brought me to tears and lifted my spirit. I highly recommend it to adults and children alike.” –Gary Ross, Marketing Director of The Peace Company
