CJS Movie Night: BOY'S CHOIR

BOY'S CHOIR: A moving coming of age drama set in 1970's Japan

The Canada Japan Society shows a Japanese movie at the National Film Board of Canada on the third Friday of every month. This month we are featuring Akira Ogata’s touching coming of age drama set in an orphanage in 1970’s Japan. It's a moving film that brings many social/political issues of Japan at that time into the story. It is accompanied by some great performances by both Teruyuki Kagawa and Sora Toma.

The film was showcased in the Berlin Fim Festival and won numerous awards, both in Japan and elsewhere.
