Japanese Movie & Dinner Night

Buy your tickets before they sell out!

Jun-Ai A film of “Japanese-Chinese collaboration for the world.”
Jun-Ai means “True” or “Pure Love”. The lead actress’s name is Keiko Kobayashi and someone appropriately called her “the Julia Roberts of Japan.” She is a uniquely talented and courageous actress, screenwriter, and producer in Japan who spear-headed this moving film. She is also a woman with profound vision for world peace – for the sake of children of the world. She believes firmly that one person, one film can change the world! She is also doing some wonderful things to help create better schools and kindergarten to begin with, in China.
It is the summer of 1945, the end of a long world war and conflict between Japan and China. The story involves war but portrays love a love that overcomes the conflict between two neighboring nations. Overcoming one obstacle after another, Ai and Shunsuke, along with their new-found enemy turned friend, Shanron, son of a blind Chinese woman who harbors them, experience the taste of friendship beyond borders and the kind of love that’s worth risking their lives for. Featuring spectacular scenery and cinematography, this contemplative film offers a true gift to the world: The possibility of openings hearts through repentance, forgiveness and newly blossoming love.

Please join us to view "Jun Ai" movie in Seattle inviting Keiko Kobayashi as a special guest from Tokyo, Japan.

    February 28, 2013

    • Rhonda

      Only if there is room. Priority will be given to the members who attend the movie first. If all the members attend the movie, then there will be no spots for the dinner. For those who would like to attend only the dinner, I will be hosting another Maneki event in late April.
