Next month, Hope will be taking his film to Japan and presenting through a program run by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“It’s designed as a cultural and business exchange opportunity for future leaders in the business and cultural sectors in Canada with links to Japan. My nomination for the program was seconded by the Japanese Consul General and Japanese Ambassador to Canada,” Hope wrote.
This will be the second time his grandmother’s inspiring story will have taken Hope to Japan, which is an unexpected pleasure for him. The screening will also allow Hope to tour 10 different Japanese cities, three of which were affected by the 3/11 tsunami.
