Special Screening
Kainan 1890 – 125 Years Memory  (海難 1890/ Ertuğrul 1890)

Runtime: 132 min

Director: Mitsutoshi Tanaka

The Japan Foundation, Toronto is proud to cooperate with the JCCC, the Japanese Consulate, and the Turkish Consulate General in Toronto to present Mitsutoshi Tanaka’s spectacular Japanese-Turkish co-production.

KAINAN 1890 was nominated for Japanese Academy Awards in 9 categories including Best Film, Best Director and Best Male and Female Performances and was a big hit at the 2016 TJFF.

The film links two significant historical moments in the relations between these two countries: the wrecking of the Ottoman frigate Erturul off the Japanese coast in 1890 where more than five hundred sailors were drowned with the survivors being rescued through the extraordinary efforts of Japanese locals; and the rescue of 215 Japanese nationals from Tehran by a Turkish Airlines team during the Iraq-Iran War in 1985. A moving tale of international friendship featuring an international all-star cast, gripping intrigue and spectacular effects.

Starring Seiyo Uchino, Shiori Kutsuna, Naoto Takenaka, Kenan Ece, Alican Yucesoy

You can purchase ticket at JCCC reception in person or by phone, 416-441-2345.
