This Friday the Nissan Institute will have a special event on the occasion of the 20-year anniversary of the Tokyo Sarin Attack in the Tokyo subway in March 1995.  The controversial documentary film on Aum Shinrikyo by Mr. Mori Tatsuya will be shown in our Nissan Lecture Theatre from 1430 on Friday.  After a coffee break, we will then welcome the film producer and journalist Mori Tatsuya himself who made this documentary to speak about the affair, from 1700.  We expect that the conversation will touch upon various urgent themes and issues of contemporary Japan and religious terrorism in a rapidly shrinking world.
