Ishinomaki - The Black Water Documentary

After two rough days of editing, our documentary about the relief trip to Ishinomaki is finally finished. I am very proud of this work and think it is a very heavy and gripping story. 




A documentary film about Ishinomaki in Miyagi prefecture one of the hardest hit areas of the March 11, 2011 tsunami. This documentary deals with the city, the people and relief efforts completed by individuals living in Tokyo to send relief supplies to a center for disabled people in Ishinomaki.

I thank Ken Nishikawa for the great effort at editing this video and believe this is the finest project I have ever worked on.


I hope you enjoy it.

Very informative documentary, shows a side of things not seen on mass media. My thought as a US citizen - what a contrast to the post-Katrina situation, which, lets face it, was practically nothing in comparison.

Music credits?

The video is not something I'll soon forget. It did seem like you all were doing something good, something meaningful.

I am so proud of my alma mater, St. Mary's International School, for participating in the disaster relief efforts. My heart is still in Japan. I still pray for the people there.
