OF NOTE

Seaweed documentary takes gold

A Japanese documentary video on a Japanese initiative to regenerate seaweed beds has been awarded the top prize in an international film and video competition.

The 47th Competition for Films and Videos on Japan was sponsored by the Association for the Diffusion of Japanese Films Abroad and the Japan Association of Audiovisual Producers.

The documentary, "The Aquatic Afforestation," took the gold prize and also received prizes from The Japan Times and the International Herald Tribune/Asahi Shimbun.

The silver prize was awarded to two videos: "The Story of a Soy Sauce Cask -- The Tale That Conveys Japan's Food Culture," and "Tokyo 2003," a video about the Tokyo journeys of a Thai student who loses her grandmother's ukiyo-e print at Narita airport.

These and other prizewinning videos and films will be shown from 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 9 at Ginza Gas Hall (7-9-15 Ginza, Chuo-ku). Admission to the screenings is free.
