Special Screening
The Miracle of Crybaby Shottan (泣き虫しょったんの奇跡)

JCCC hosts and co-presents with Toronto Reel Asian Film International Festival

Toshiaki Toyoda’s star-studded biopic tells the true story of shogi (Japanese chess) player Shoji “Shottan” Segawa. Despite consistent dedication, Shottan fails to go professional by the time he turns 26, permanently forfeiting his change according to the game’s strict rules. Shottan does not abandon his dream and continues as a top amateur until, at 35, he makes an unprecedented bid to go professional. This inspirational tale of late-blooming self-realization and perseverance against all odds builds to a rousing conclusion.

Directed by Toshiaki Toyoda. With Ryuhei Matsuda, Yojiro Noda, Shota Sometani, Jun Kunimura, Takako Matsu, and Satoshi Tsumabuki.
