New Face at the JCCC The JCCC is pleased to announce we have welcomed Sandy Chan to the JCCC family as a full time staff member after helping out as a volunteer since She is Australian-Chinese- Japanese and arrived in Toronto in 2007 from Sydney, Australia. She speaks Japanese, English, Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. Sandy has a Master's Degree from Macquarie University in Sydney in International Relations and is also an accomplished pianist.

The new Board is as follows: President Gary Kawaguchi Past President Marty Kobayashi VP, Heritage Peter Wakayama VP, J-comm Junko Mifune VP, Legacy Art Ito VP, Management Ann Ashley VP, Strategic Planning Donna Davis Special Ambassador Sid Ikeda Secretary Sharon Marubashi Treasurer Sri Kugan Directors George Hewson James Matsumoto Lorene Nagata Yuki Nakamura Dereck Oikawa Russell Onizuka Cary Rothbart Glenn Inamoto (In Memory) Advisors Miki Kobayashi Mickey Matsubayashi Steve Oikawa Fred Sasaki Connie Sugiyama Everyone is full of enthusiasm and looking forward to another busy year.

"SHUNKA SHUTO" Opening this Fall The JCCC is pleased to announce, "SHUNKA SHUTO" " will be opening in October and will be replacing the café service system that closed in August. "SHUNKA SHUTO" is a partnership with a popular local Japanese restaurant. "SHUNKA SHUTO" will offer Japanese foods such as: onigiri, curry rice, gyudon, kurogoma (black sesame) ice cream, daifuku (Japanese sweets), Japanese beverages, snacks, teas, and fair trade organic coffees. All will be available at reasonable prices. The projected opening of the "SHUNKA SHUTO" is mid- October Movie Night: Kaidan A Traditional Japanese Ghost Story Nakata Hideo, the director of Ring and Dark Water, chose a traditional Japanese ghost story for his 2007 film, Kaidan. Based on a famous 19th-century story by Sanyutei Encho, this eerie and elegant Edo-period piece is stylistically a marked departure from his previous films, though every bit as chilling. A nod to the works of pioneering filmmaker Nakagawa Nobuo, Kaidan evokes the classical horrors of the 1950s and 1960s with its folk tale narration and kabuki romanticism, infusing modern production values with age-old scares. The film both terrifies and enchants with its handsome photography, beautiful art direction, and haunting tale. Appropriately enough, kabuki star Onoe Kikunosuke (Inugamike no Ichizoku) embodies the film's tragic lead, crossing paths with a strong line-up of actresses that includes Kuroki Hitomi (Tokyo Tower), Seto Asako (Death Note), Aso Kumiko (Nada Sou Sou), and Inoue Mao (Gegege no Kitaro). Years ago, a debt collector was slain by a samurai. Before falling to his death, the debt collector placed a curse on the samurai who went on to kill his wife and himself. Years later, the samurai's son Shinkichi (Onoe Kikunosuke) is now a tobacco seller, and as cruel fate would have it, he falls in love with the debt collector's daughter Toyoshiga (Kuroki Hitomi) who is years his senior. Toyoshiga's jealous nature, however, drives a wedge in their relationship, and he accidentally injures her during a quarrel, inflicting a wound similar to that which killed her father. After she dies, Shinkichi runs off with one of her students (Inoue Mao), hoping to start anew, but Shinkichi can't seem to escape Toyoshiga's resentful spirit and all the women who cycle relentlessly in and out of his life.

6 Fall Tai Chi Classes Fall Tai Chi classes have again resumed this September, with new and returning students from the summer course continuing to enjoy the benefits of Tai Chi practices. Fall formal classes will be held twice per month with Sifu Emiko. However, some people have indicated that it can be challenging to retain what they learned in past classes. Accordingly, the JCCC is pleased to announce that the JCCC and Sifu Emiko have arranged Wednesday student review days (when no classes will be held) with the JCCC providing practice space. Sifu Emiko has also very kindly offered to provide experienced Tai Chi practitioners from her own private course, who will be on hand to help the JCCC students improve their movements, stances, etc. (please note that Sifu Emiko will not be hand for these sessions and students will only review what they learned from formal classes, not learning new things). This will also allow students to practice with their classmates every Wednesday at the JCCC. Review days are free for the JCCC class registered students.

JCCC Family Golf Co-Chair Sharon Marubashi Crowds and Stars Flock to First Shinsedai Cinema Festival We are very pleased to report that the first Shinsedai Cinema Festival was a real success, greatly exceeding our expectations. The program was a mix of entertaining and accessible thrillers, comedies and dramas along with some more challenging art film and documentaries. At the JCCC we have always been trying to fill the gap between the two extremes of Japanese film making that is usually found on Toronto screens; that is classics by masters like Ozu and Kurosawa, and popular horror and exploitation films like The Ringu and Tokyo Gore Police. In our monthly film nights we try to identify films that are not, or rarely, shown in Toronto that reflect the Japanese cinema that is enjoyed by the average Japanese. These are crowd-pleasers like, Always, Hula Girls, Departures, Tony Takitani, When the Last Sword Is Drawn, etc.. Shinsedai allows us to expose another important aspect of Japanese film culture: new films by up-and-coming young directors. For another perspective on the Festival we have included and article by Carly Yoshida-Butryn which originally appeared in the September 2009 issue of Nikkei Voice (see page 7). 8 Photo left: co-programmers Chris McGee and Jasper Sharp toast the opening of the Festival with "Thunderfish" lead actress Junko Kimoto.

9 New Japanese Film Festival Showcases Independent Films By Carly Yoshida-Butryn People who regularly attend events at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto may not be used to seeing edgy, avant garde cinema, but that s exactly what they got last month at the first-annual Shinsedai Cinema Festival in Toronto. Artistic as well as frank portrayals of sexuality, war, violence, and love were common themes present in the cinema screened at the festival showcasing independent Japanese filmmaking. Almost two thousand people attended the three-day festival that took place from August 21to 23, screening new, upcoming talent emerging in Japan. The films varied from short films that were only five minutes long to documentaries and full feature-length films that were over an hour. Many of the films shown had their Canadian debut at this festival and were a definite departure from the chaste and traditional fare typically seen at the Centre and on Japanese television. But that s what festival organizers Jasper Sharp and Chris MaGee were going for. We re doing something very different than what people expect from Japanese film, said MaGee, founder and editor of the Toronto J-Film PowWow, an online community dedicated to discussing Japanese film. We wanted a mix of films, said Sharp. We weren t necessarily going for crowd pleasers. The festival was curated by Sharp, an author, film historian, and cofounder of Midnight Eye (midnighteye.com), an online resource dedicated to new Japanese cinema. Audience members varied from young film buffs to silver-haired seniors. While most of the films were in Japanese, English subtitles made sure that everyone could understand the films. And while some of the artier, more abstract films left attendees a little lost and confused, the response to the festival was positive, and MaGee and Sharp have high hopes for next year. The two hope the festival will be even bigger in 2010 and are considering adding an extra day to the event. For a first year festival, I think we re doing really well. I m very proud, said MaGee. The festival came together in a matter of months following the Nippon Connection film festival in April this year, another showcase for independent Japanese cinema in Frankfurt, Germany. MaGee and Sharp met there and lamented that a similar event didn t exist in Toronto. However, soon after their meeting, MaGee proposed the event idea to Executive Director of the Centre, James Heron, and the festival then came together within a matter of months. Opening night of the festival welcomed everyone to the event with a reception that included sushi catered by restaurant Sushi Marché and speeches by the event organizers thanking everyone for attending. There was also a traditional sake cask-breaking ceremony where the organizers, sponsors, and special guests broke open a cask of sake with wooden mallets to officially mark the opening of the festival. The Canadian premiere of the film Naked of Defenses kicked off opening night of the festival. The film follows the life of a plastics factory worker named Ritsuko who strikes up a friendship with a new colleague who is eight months pregnant. But their relationship is made difficult by Ritsuko s recent miscarriage. The powerful film held audiences captive with its honest characters and representations of love, sorrow, and friendship. Another highlight included the North American premiere screening of Thunderfish on the second night of the festival, what MaGee called the closest thing to a gala that Shinsedai had. The full-length feature film follows freelance photojournalist Hasumi to Cantella Island, a place known for its brothel and hospitable prostitutes, to find a missing photographer. His journey leads him to a mysterious prostitute who may hold the key to why bodies wash up under the Mosulin Bridge every year and how that relates to a mysterious fish called raigyo. The film was dark, scary, and sensual and kept the audience enthralled until the very end. The screening was followed by a Q&A session with director Touru Hano, cinematographer Tetsuhiro Kato, and lead actress Junko Kimoto who all flew in from Japan for the event. The Iraq war documentary Little Birds was also screened that day. Cheers to a successful event! Subaru Canada CEO and President Katsuhiro Yokoyama leads the opening "Kampai". Photo courtesy of Jerry Hipsh. From left to right: filmmakers Akino Kondoh, Yoshihiro Ishii, Touru Hano, Tetsuhiro Kato. Photo courtesy of Jerry Hipsh. The gripping documentary follows everyday citizens living in Iraq who deal with the destruction and danger of the war. Directed by Takeharu Watai, the documentary shows a more human side to the conflict, giving audiences a glimpse into life in a war-torn country. Now you might be wondering how two young Caucasian men ended up organizing such an event and why they have become enthralled with Japanese cinema. But MaGee just likens it to falling in love. Just like you can t choose who you fall in love with, MaGee and Sharp just can t help being in love with Japanese film. It s about introducing Japanese cinema to people who aren t familiar with it, and to those who are, it s about introducing things they have not encountered before, said MaGee of the festival. You never know who you re going to reach with these films. (Printed with permission from Nikkei Voice) 9
