Twenty-five years after his death at the age of 22, Terry Fox remains a hero to all Canadians. After losing one leg to bone cancer at 18, he started his gMarathon of Hopeh - a run across Canada - to raise money for cancer research and encourage people suffering from the disease. He died after running 5,373 km in 143 days. But his dream has been taken up by others, and Terry Fox charity runs now take place in over 50 countries around the world. Proceeds of this event will go to cancer research institutes in Japan and to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Details and registration forms are available from the Terry Fox Run office at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo Chinzan-so.

@@Will Aichi, Nagoya

Following a suicide attempt, Ken, a young man from Montreal with no will to live, goes to stay with his uncle in Japan who makes shigaraki pottery. Though perplexed by the different culture and habits he finds around him, he is encouraged by his uncle's free way of life and the open acceptance he gets from his relatives. Additionally, his encounters with potters in the studio gradually aroused an interest in pottery. As he helps his uncle, Ken opens his heart and even becomes capable of firing pottery, a most difficult task. gKamatakih won five awards including Best Director at the 2005 Montreal International Film FestivalD It will undoubtedly be screened commercially in Japan.

2005, 110 minutes, in English with Japanese subtitles.
