2012-11-14 | Finding Refugee in Ishinomaki Special Screening in Yamagata

Ishinomaki City in Miyagi prefecture is the area greatly affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Documentary filmmaker Fujikawa Keizo stayed at Minato Primary School, one of the evacuation centers established in the area, for over 6 months after the disaster, capturing the lives of the evacuees in his documentary Finding Refugee in Ishinomaki. We’ll hold a special screening event of this film in Cybele Arena, Yamagata, on December 8.

After the show, a talk session with the director Fujikawa and artist Inukai Tomo, representative of “Watanoha Smile,” will be also held. “Watanoha Smile” is the NPO which has constantly supported children living in the affected areas in Ishinomaki by holding art workshops.
