About the Film

Sugihara: Conspiracy of Kindness is a celebration of the selfless humanitarian spirit and a testament to each and every individual. The film presents the story of Chuine Sugihara, the Japanese Consul and the fascinating relationship between the Japanese and the Jews during the 1930's and 1940's. In the fall of 1939, Hitler's murderous wave was sweeping through Eastern Europe. As a Japanese Consul in Lithuania, Sugihara used his diplomatic powers and defied government orders by issuing visas to two thousand Jews, enabling them to flee from impending internment to a safe haven in Japan.
