Turning the Tide: The Fight to Reduce Suicide in Japan

Thursday, March 14, 2013   19:30 - 21:00

Speaker:
  • Rene Duignan

“Saving 10,000 – Winning a War on Suicide in Japan” is a 52-minute documentary directed by TUJ ICAS Adjunct Fellow Dr. Rene Duignan. At this event, Rene will discuss the movie’s key findings while showing some excerpts. Unusually for a small documentary, “Saving 10,000” has attracted a lot of media interest with Rene giving over 20 interviews to date. The movie has also sparked interest from politicians with DVD requests from a Minister and Vice-Minister. A special screening/Q&A will be held at the Japanese Parliament in March. Rene has had the privilege of sharing his ideas in a meeting with the head of the Suicide Prevention Unit of the Cabinet Office. After the Japanese media coverage, screening/speaking requests have been coming from all over Japan. More info at www.saving10000.com. Please note DVDs will be provided free of charge to any organisation/university/NGO that would like to hold a public screening. Rene will endeavor to fulfill as many speaking requests as is feasible for a “film director” with a day job. Requests and enquiries to japanincontext@gmail.com
