Film screening: Fusions of the Heart, Ishizue
New short documentary by Linda Ohama (36 min., filmed on location in Onomichi, Japan [Engl./Jpn.]). It is a story about one’s roots and branches and why it is important to develop and maintain one’s roots to understand one’s place in our world. Thirteen young Nikkei Canadian youth known as Chibi Taiko (6-23 years old) travel to Japan to discover their roots and learn to play taiko – traditional drum – with an Onomichi taiko group, Betchar Daiko. Ishizue follows their journey with surprising results for both the Canadians and the Japanese.
