Nakayoshi has partnered with CAAMfest this year to co-present the S.F. premiere of The Land of Hope (Kibou no Kuni).


This is Japan’s first narrative feature inspired by the 2011 Fukushima disaster. Set in the fictional prefecture of Nagashima, the film dramatizes the effect of an eerily similar catastrophe on a small farming town. The Land of Hope shows the moral dilemmas faced by people who want to move on from tragedy without abandoning the essence of who they are.

Visit the official CAAMfest page to learn more about the movie:

This movie has 2 screenings in 2 different locations on 2 different days:

Sundance Kabuki Cinemas
March 16, 2013 9:40 pm

Pacific Film Archive Theater
March 21, 2013 7:00 pm

If we get 10 or more people to attend either screening or both, tickets will be discounted to $10 per person. Once 10+ people are confirmed for a screening, I will purchase the tickets. Otherwise, tickets are available now if you’d like to make your own arrangements. If you plan to attend with us, please indicate which date you would like to attend through e-mail, nakayoshi.ncwnp [@] gmail [dot] com or through our Facebook event page:

Please let me know if you have any questions and see you at the movie!

Cheers – JSN
