Description:

“The Shadow of Hiroshima” was first broadcast in England on August 6, 1995. This poem, in which a man who was killed and left his shadow on a stone step at the bombing becomes a guide to Hiroshima, is presented verbally over the visual imagery in a film. The poet has a deep knowledge of Greek drama. 詩「ヒロシマの影」は1995年8月6日に英国のテレビで放送された。原爆投下時、石段に影を残した死者がヒロシマを案内する設定。テレビ番組では、映像と共に詩が朗読された。作者はギリシャ演劇に造けいが深い。
