Aim for the Best: Sports in Japanese Cinema (Redux)

Aim for the Best: Sports in Japanese Cinema (Redux)
Now streaming through May 28th


We deeply mourn those lost in the shootings on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 in Atlanta, and our hearts are with all the people affected by this act of violence in Georgia and beyond. Anti-AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) hate incidents have been on the rise since the beginning of the pandemic at alarming rates. We at Japan Society condemn racism, bigotry and discrimination in all forms and stand by those who promote love and safety for the Asian American community.
