A deaf-mute garbage collector happens upon a broken and discarded surfboard. The discovery plants in him dreams of becoming a surf champion. Encouraged by his girlfriend, he persists against all odds. Though trapped in silence, their expression of love is no less profound. A heartrending masterpiece that has a sharp eye for human frailties and a love for the courage of the underdog.
The screening will feature an introduction by Jasper Sharp, author, film critic and co-founder of the MidnightEye.com website devoted to Japanese film.
