The Canada Japan Society is proud to present the harrowing tale of newspaper reporters covering the largest, single aircraft disaster in history, the crash of JAL Flight 123 in 1985. Directed by Masato Harada (Bounce Ko Gals, Inugami, Kamikaze Taxi), this suspenseful tale brings us inside the workings of a Japanese newspaper department in the 1980s.

The film delves into the tumultuous and stressful world of Japanese reporting where politics, money and traditions often get in the way of the ethics of journalism. Harada brings his deft style to this film based on a book by the real life main character, ex-reporter Kazumasa Yuuki, then a coordinator at the North Kanto Times when JAL Flight 123 crashed into Mt. Takamagahara in Gunma Prefecture claiming 520 lives.

The film was nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards and features strong acting performances from Shinichi Tsutsumi, Tsutomo Yamzaki, Masato Sakai and Machiko Ono.

As a special treat we have a Yosokoi dance performance by the Buyaku Dance Troupe prior to the screening. And as always, our ever popular post party at Everest will take place after the film; it’s a great time to meet new people and practice your English or Japanese talking about the film. Please come on out for a great evening of dance, film, and fun.
