Momotarō’s Sea Eagle (Momotarō no Umiwashi) (Japan, 1942, 37 min) is a black and white anime in Japanese with English subtitles, screened with a brief introduction and concluding Q & A session

In Japanese legend, the hero Momotarō (“Peach Boy”), with his animal allies, goes to the island of the oni (horned demons or ogres) and defeats them.

In this wartime animated retelling, Momotarō and the animals ride in warships and planes, the oni (still horned) are American sailors, and their island base is Pearl Harbor.
