About

Director's Message  

Tohoku Trilogy has been my passion project for a long time. "Hakubo" is a story set in Iwaki, Fukushima, and will be the final fim of my trilogy project. I've produced "blossom" for Otsuchi, Iwate, and "Wake Up, Girls!" for Sendai, Miyagi. Now I finally feel fully prepared to tell my story of Fukushima.  

Those 2 previous titles were, in some ways, critizing the society. But for "Hakubo," I'm trying to make it more lighthearted and simply show the present life of boys and girls happily living in Fukushima.  

Actually I came up with the idea of "Hakubo" when I was a university student. I've been tossing it around for 20 years -- this is another reason why I'm very happy that "Hakubo" is finally coming togther. 

I was questioning myself how I should portray Fukushima in my trilogy story and had an ispiration to combine the idea of "Hakubo" and Fukushima. 

An ordinary girl's life and love -- For us, living in post-Fukushima world, it is something we feel so precious and irreplaceable.
I'm making the film to share the same value and feeling.
We also plan to use "Hakubo" for various contents toursim projects, in hope that our film will hype up people to visit Fukushima. 

The reason why we chose crowdfundig is something I've been telling bits and scraps in several places. To put it in a simple way, I wanted to make "Hakubo" with the least constraints. I believe crowdfuning is the best way to deliver free, pure, and rich film. 

Please help us make a fruitful endeavor with "Hakubo." Thank you for your support and cooperation.  

Original Work and Director Yutaka Yamamoto

A high school boy in Fukushima: Ordinary boy who loves simple life and painting, but Tohoku earthquake has cast shadow over his life.  

Two meets in ordinary landscape of northeast Japan. Somewhat awkward encounter will gradually grow and become love. Will their love bring miracle to the world, or will it vanish like a daydream?
Regardless of what lies in the future, they love and share their core values of the life, feeling the breath of the world.

◆ Greeting from Project Producer ◆
  
Hello. I’m Koji Wada, “Hakubo” project producer.
Thanks to our fans, the last crowdfunding we had 2 years ago in Japan met a great success: We raised about $180,000 USD with 1,225 backers. 


 “Hakubo” production started with the fund we raised in last campaign, and will finally be in theaters on May 24, 2019! Thank you to all the fans and backers for being very supportive and patient. 

As we’ve got just 100 days before “Hakubo” hits the theaters, we started this campaign in hope to share “Hakubo” with fans anywhere in the world.

 “Hakubo” is the final film of Director Yutaka Yamamoto’s Tohoku Trilogy and set in Fukushima. 

We hope to bring the film to people especially in Fukushima, but also to the fans outside of Japan by making English subtitle. Our team will always remember the spirit and passion of what we started with. 

Our previous crowdfunding campaign was not open for donation outside of Japan and we received lots of message from around the world.
This time we chose Kickstarter for easier access. 

Thank you for all the support!
