★The Screening of “The Volunteer, for Real?”★
~ You can’t change the world, but you can trigger the change ~
Director: Tsuyoshi Satoda
Narrator: Kengo Takami
When Hiroaki Ishimatsu begins to wonder if there’s more to his privileged life than sleeping in class, hitting on girls, and partying, he decides to start a volunteer club called GRAPHIS, a non-profit student group which raises the funds to build a school in Cambodia for impoverished kids. Upon observing the conditions of Cambodian healthcare, Ishimatsu, a medical student and budding doctor, decides that he also wants to build a clinic for rural Cambodian residents, an undertaking with considerably more obstacles and costs.
【Message from the Director】
“I have to do something but I don’t know what I should do!” For those who share the same feeling, this is the movie I want you to watch. It depicts the happiness and despairs that only those who had like there is no tomorrow to achieved their goals know.
