Pray For Japan
Pray for Japan is a feature length documentary film I began when volunteering in Tohoku, Japan after the earthquake and tsunami tragedy. I shot 40 hours of footage over 5 weeks in Tohoku, interviewing over 30 people - from victims to volunteers. The goal of the film is to share with the world the same inspiration I felt from meeting these real-life heroes. No matter how difficult, how insurmountable was the challenge they faced, these people overcame. The battle to rebuild Tohoku and Japan continues - and the world must not forget their story. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If the movie's tone is a little sappy, that's hardly inappropriate. Sorrow and resilience are the common bond of the major characters."
‑ Mark Jenkins, NPR
"If making a decent movie required only good intentions, then "Pray for Japan" would be off and running."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Filmed over a period of six weeks and supplemented with animated music sequences and chilling news footage of the terrifying deluge, Pray is both an elegy and a love letter."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
