Showcase Event Dates




November 17: Departures. This 2009 Academy Award winning movie depicts a touching journey into the heartland of Japan and an astonishingly beautiful look at Japan?s sacred traditions about death and the caring of the dead before cremation. This film truly shows us how to truly live while confronting the reality of death. Inspired by the Japanese best selling Buddhist book, Coffinman.
