Screening in Japan after the tsunami

Last week we had a screening of “Spot and Splodge in Snowstorm” for kids in Japan who were hit by the tsunami in 2011.

The screening took place in a community center of Ishinomaki (Miyagi prefecture) called KAMIDAINIKAIKAN in the TATAMI Theater, and was organized by Haruko Hashimoto who is the director of Snow collective who organize a film festival In Snow, screening films in a theater made of snow and ice.
Look at a short film who shows this magniciant theater.

Few more screening are palned, among them at Kesennuma Fenix batting center in June. This center opened last month with money donated by Mr Chiba who lost seven members of his family in the tsunami. He saved money for 3 years from his milk delivery company.

I’m happy we can bring some comfort to the children.
