About

“Anne of Japan” is a documentary that will focus on the Japanese interest in Anne of Green Gables. Some people know that Anne of Green Gables is popular in Japan. But not many know how popular she is. She’s bigger than the Beatles. She is an instantly recognizable figure in Japanese culture. How did this happen? Ever since L.M. Montgomery’s novel was translated into Japanese by Hanako Muraoka and published in 1952, the novel has been read by generations of Japanese women and become a cherished part of Japanese culture. The story of Hanako Muraoka translating the book during WWII at great personal risk is an amazing story in itself, which is being immortalized in a 156-part morning drama to be broadcast on NHK in spring 2014. In 1979, Nippon Animation Company produced an anime version of “Akage No An” (Anne of Red Hair). 50 episodes of the show were produced by legends of Japanese anime Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki. In Hokkaido, there’s a Canadian World theme park, home to a recreation of the Green Gables house. And in Okayama, there’s a Green Gables School of Nursing, a training institution meant to instil the values of Anne into each graduating class of nurses. How did a fictional character from a tiny Canadian island come to be a beloved heroine in Japanese culture? “Anne of Japan” seeks to answer that question.

「日本のアン」は、日本における「赤毛のアン」への関心に焦点をあてるドキュメンタリーです。

日本での「赤毛のアン」の人気はよく知られていますが、その人気が一体どれほどのものなのかを知るひとはあまりいないでしょう。実際のところ、日本でアンはビートルズを凌ぐほどの人気があるといっても過言ではないのです。日本文化において、アンは誰もが知っている存在なのです。それはなぜなのでしょうか。昭和27年に、村岡花子による日本語訳が出版されて以来、L. M.モンゴメリの書いたこの小説は、世代をこえて日本の女性に読み継がれ、日本文化のなかに浸透していきました。昭和54年には、日本アニメーション株式会社制作のアニメ版「赤毛のアン」が、高畑勲と宮崎駿のコンビによって、50話におよぶ大ヒットとなりました。戦争中、危険をかえりみずに翻訳に没頭した村岡花子の半生を描くNHKの朝の連続ドラマ「花子とアン」が、今年の春からスタートするのも話題になっています。現在でも、北海道の「カナディアンワールド公園」に行けば、忠実に再現された赤毛のアンの「生家」を訪ねることができ、岡山県には、赤毛のアンの精神を受け継ぐことを謳う福祉専門学校が実際に存在するのです。遠くカナダの小さな島を舞台とする一小説の登場人物が、日本において、どのようにして皆に愛されるヒロインとなったのか。その疑問に「日本のアン」は答えます。

Risks and challenges

The projected finish date for "Anne of Japan" will be October 15, 2014. Between now and then, a lot of things need to happen. In July, we’ll be on Prince Edward Island to document the Japanese story in the home of Anne of Green Gables. Very soon, we hope to interview several important protagonists in Japan, including: Isao Takahata, the creator of the 1979 anime version of Akage No An and also Eri and Mie Miki, the granddaughters of Hanako Muraoka who originally translated L.M. Montgomery’s novel into Japanese. The Kickstarter campaign will also help to fund licensing fees for using clips from the Akage No An anime, clips from the recent musical staged by St. Co. and a clip from an NHK documentary that documents a trip that Isao Takahata made to Prince Edward Island in 2004.

「日本のアン」の完成予定日は2014年の10月15日ですが、まだまだやらなければならないことがたくさんあります。7月には、アンの故郷のプリンス¬・エドワード島での撮影があります。また、このドキュメンタリーの重要な登場人物である、アニメ「赤毛のアン」の監督高畑勲氏や、小説「赤毛のアン」初版翻訳者村岡花子の孫にあたる村岡恵理氏などのインタビューも只今交渉中ですので大変期待しています。このキックスターターのキャンペーンで得られた資金は、アニメ「赤毛のアン」やNHK番組をはじめとする、様々な映像クリップの使用権にもあてられます。
