April Movie Night: GOOD MORNING SHOW


GOOD MORNING SHOW

In writer/director Ryoichi Kimizuka’s new hit comedy, Shingo (Kiichi Nakai) is a host for the popular morning TV show “Good Morning Show.” One morning Shingo wakes up at 3am as usual, only to becomes involved in a quarrel between his wife and son. Shingo arrives at the broadcasting station and co-host Keiko (Masami Nagasawa) demands that he reveal their romantic relationship live on air. Making things even worse, the producer informs Shingo that the show is about to be cancelled. As if his day isn’t complicated enough, a story breaks that a man with a shotgun is holding hostages at a cafe and is demanding Shingo come to the scene as a negotiator!!!

May Movie Night: After The Storm


After the Storm

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Latest Masterpiece Comes to the JCCC

Gentle and melancholy yet surprisingly amusing, the latest film by celebrated Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister, Like father Like Son) focuses on Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), a failed writer, thirdrate detective, and no-luck gambler who has become separated from his wife and young son. When a typhoon strikes one night, the broken family is forced to spend the night together at the home of Ryota’s mother, where the ensuing interaction — free of melodrama or forced catharsis — is tender, bittersweet, and quietly incisive, in true Kore-eda style. A bit hit at TIFF this is one of the best films of 2016. With Kirin Kiki, Yoko Maki and Satomi Kobayashi.

Sushi will be on sale prior to the screening.

KUMIHIMO Workshop

Both required kumihimo to secure their clothing. Kumihimo loosely translates to “gathered threads.” Through different techniques, a person is able to gather many threads together to create a stronger cord. It is a form of braiding…Japanese-style. The technique has been around for more than almost 1500 years and was in danger of being a lost art due to the mechanization of the processes. However this technique is enjoying a recent surge in popularity with crafters.
