Synopsis
Yamamoto is called to the office of Professor Anayama. The professor points out the anomalous fact that even though the role says he was present at every class, he’d never set eyes on the student before. He then announces that he has been appointed Yamamoto’s thesis advisor, and points out that, even though Yamamoto has a job arranged, he needs to pass the thesis to graduate. With the power relations thus defined, he strikes a deal with Yamamoto: join the sumo club, or you won’t graduate.

Directed by: MORITANI Shiro
In September 1954, a ferry sank during a storm in the narrow Tsuagaru channel between Hokkaido, and mainland, killing 1426 passengers. The accident brought about a demand for the building of a tunnel beneath the channel. Akutsu Go is sent to cape Tappi at the tip of the Tsugaru peninsula to conduct a preliminary survey for the tunnel construction. One winter day, he finds a woman standing on a precipice, obviously about to commit suicide. Her carelessness had caused a fire in a hotel which killed eleven people, and she could no longer live with memory of this incident.

Japanese Movie: Forest of the Little Bear, Apr 28 2010 @ Japan Information and Culture Centre

Directed by Goto Toshio in 1987. With English subtitles
Playing at 5.15pm at the centre’s auditorium

In the snowy winter of 1928, the old hunter Ginzo finally arrives at his village on a horse‐ drawn sleigh. He is returning after a ten‐year prison term. The old man was known as the best dear hunter in the village and was called ‘dead shot Ginzo’ as he could kill bear with only one shot. But he inclined to get violent when he drank, and in a drunken fight ten years ago he had severely injured several people. Consequently he was sent to prison. On his return he learns that his son, a soldier, was killed in action in Siberia seven years ago, and that now he has just his daughter‐in‐law Kimi and his grandson Ippei, whom he must now take care of. Although Kimi opposes it because she knows hunting is no longer viable and she wishes Ippei to attend middle school, Ginzo begins to teach Ippei how to hunt.
