About the films: From the creative team of the documentary Tohoku Tomo, an IFDA Finalist with over 30 domestic and international screening to date, comes the 113 Project, a short film series inviting you to rediscover Tohoku through the eyes of young adults, local businesses, and other communities rebuilding their lives and working towards the future.

Featuring over a dozen interviews and stories embodying hope and perseverance, these short films showcase the warmth and beauty of the region while sharing the voices of people who want to let you know how life is today.

The public is encouraged to use the hashtag #TTweek for Tohoku Tomo Week, where thoughts, photos, and memories of Tohoku can be shared on social media.

Tohoku Tomo Screening

JETAA Rocky Mountain is excited to announce a special screening of the film TOHOKU TOMO at the SIE Film Center (2510 E. Colfax, Denver) at 2pm on Sunday, March 15th.

TOHOKU TOMO is a film about the aftermath of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami on the Tohoku region – but rather than focusing on the destruction and loss, it showcases the results of the recovery efforts and the hope that has re-infused the area, offering an inspirational and uplifting take on where things stand now.
As a special bonus, director and JET Alum Wesley Julian will be present to discuss the making of the film and a Q&A session afterwards.

We would like to use this opportunity to raise money for helping Tohoku rebuilding efforts, and suggest a minimum donation of $10 which will go to the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund, supporting recovery efforts in the Tohoku region. JETAA Rocky Mountain is offering concession tickets for a soda and popcorn to the first 80 people who make a donation.
