From the Daily Yomiuri Online, 3/8/09:

A documentary featuring people with mental disabilities or autism living in a welfare institution was completed in February, with its first screening scheduled for April in Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo.

With the aim of showing the day-to-day lives of disabled people, who tend to have limited contact with society, Nobue Miyazaki directed "Ashita Tenki ni Naru?" (Will It Be Sunny Tomorrow?), produced by the Koto Ward-based production company Peace Create.


The screening will be held from 7 p.m. on April 1 at Bunkyo Civic Hall in Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo. Advance tickets are 1,000 yen each. Tickets sold on the day cost 1,200 yen. Tickets for primary, middle and high school students are 800 yen each.
