J-Film in Blue: A Story of Yonosuke Presented by the Japan Information & Culture Center, Embassy of Japan and Japan Commerce Association of Washington, D.C., Inc. Image: © 2013 "A Story of Yonosuke" Film Partners Presented in conjunction with the JICC's exhibition Indigo Threads / 藍・つむぐ: Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship & American Heritage Learn the beauty of what it means to be ordinary. Directed by Shuichi Okita (The Woodsman and the Rain, The Chef of South Polar, Mori The Artist's Habitat) It is 1987 - the zenith of Japan's economic success - and eighteen-year-old Yonosuke Yokomichi has moved to Tokyo from Nagasaki. Normal in every way possible, Yonosuke finds himself out of step with his seemingly more worldly counterparts at university. Despite his somewhat goofy exterior, Yonosuke's disarming friendliness and charm naturally bring people together. A touching coming-of-age story that celebrates the beauty of "ordinary" people.
