Visas and Virtue

Posted on: June 6, 2001 | Views: 3,422 | Comment

Inspired by a true story, Visas and Virtue is a dramatic recreation that explores the moral and professional dilemmas that Japanese Consul General Chiune "Sempo" Sugihara faced in making a life-or-death decision: defy his own government's direct orders and risk his career by issuing lifesaving transit visas or obey orders and turn his back on humanity.

The film won the 1997 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.
