2018. Japan. 41 minutes.
In-person Q&A with Toko Shiiki and Erik Santos.
This documentary shares the power of inspiration as seen through a music teacher, Ms. Abe, and her junior high school brass band, who live around the coast of Fukushima, Japan – an area that was strongly affected by the disasters of 2011. Seven years after the disaster, Ms. Abe encountered another big challenge. However, she never gives up music and life and keeps moving forward with hope.
