Mr. Jiro Shindo, and Ms. Kaze Shindo, participate in a father and daughter talk show!
The screening of “Shimajima Kaisha” and a talk show was held in NTT CRED Hall No.1 at 10:00 am on November 25, 2018.
The movie was set on a small island in Okinawa. Ms. Aoi Ito acted as Umi, who has such a good ear that the slightest dissonant sound makes her head ache. Ms. Sakura Ando acted as the violinist, Yuko, who has come from Tokyo to the island for a concert. After showing the movie, there was a talk show session with Ms. Kaze Shindo, the director and Jiro Shindo, the producer.
In the talk show, Ms. Shindo, the director, spoke about how Ms. Ando talked about her history in which she had decided to quit a job and at the same time, Ms. Shindo lost an important person in her life.
They struggled with these complicated issues and Mr. Jiro Shindo assured Ms. Ito would help them to overcome their difficulties. However, the child actors of the movie lived lively at the site of the filming in Okinawa. Ms. Shindo and Ms. Ando decided to do their best in the movie because of the children’s participation in the movie. After the talk show session, conversation was moved to the story of the late Mr. Kaneto Shindo who was also a director. While Ms. Shindo spent the last six years of her grandfather’s life with him, she had been considering what is the meaning of life or death. She also said, “My grandfather taught me the meaning of life,” and she wants to keep making movies to which she and everyone can enjoy together after this.
