Happy New Year.  We hope the year 2013 will be a fruitful one for you all.

We have two big projects early this year.

1) We will start shooting the continuing part of ‘Ordinary Lives’ in Koriyama, Fukushima. Taizo Yoshida, director and cameraman and Mahito Kobayashi, editor will be in Koriyama to listen to the voices of young people who will celebrate  a coming of age ceremony on 14th January.

2) Three members will visit Bali, Indonesia to make a further reserch to see the possibilities of working with a disabled organization called ‘Senang Hati Foundation’. We visited them four times there and every time we worked with them on wheelchair maintenance and other projects. We will visit them from February 11th until 20th under the subsidy from JICA Hokkaido.

あけましておめでとうございます。皆様にとって、2013年が実り多いものになるように願います。   今年の前半には大きなプロジェクトを2つ予定しています。

1)映画「普通の生活」の続編を郡山で撮影する予定です。監督・カメラマンの吉田泰三と編集の小林眞人 が出向き、1/14に成人式を祝う若者たちの声を収録することから撮影を始めます。

2)メンバー3名がインドネシアのバリ島を訪問し、現地の障がい者団体「セナン・ハティ」との協働事業に向けての調査をします。 過去4回の訪問時には車いすの整備を一緒にやってきましたが、今後、プロジェクトとして成立するような話し合いをしてきます。JICA北海道から旅費などをいただいています。2/11-2/20までの滞在です。
