2015 August, Japanese Taiko drummer Genki Endo (who also shared life stories and music in the documentary "Threshold: Whispers of Fukushima") visited Michigan USA. He had a few workshops and performances with local people! I documented some of the moments of those events. (Please visit our Facebook page! I posted more clips! https://www.facebook.com/thresholdfukushima ) He and his group return to Michigan in March 2016 for the Fukushima Tribute Concert - 5th Anniversary of the disasters. I'll keep you posted!
It was such a wonderful musical heart-felt week! I also got full of Taiko drum power!!! And he also watched "Threshold: Whispers of Fukushima" for the first time :) He told us that he really wanted to show it to the people of Fukushima. He didn't know much about how other group of people in Fukushima kept going on (in the other area inside Fukushima). And others' stories and music certainly uplifted his heart!
I initially made this movie to share their stories with people outside of Fukushima and Japan but... after listening what Genki said, I also thought... it would be wonderful to share this with people in Fukushima too! ^_^
Actually we are planning several film screenings in different locations for the 5th anniversary of the disasters. (Including Fukushima!) Please wait for the details! Also I'll keep you posted!
