Docu Debuts in Tokyo

 Coffee and A Pencil  starts a two week run in Tokyo tomorrow. The new documentary by deaf Japanese filmmaker Ayako Imamura features Hawaiian goods shop owner and competitive surfer Tatsuro Ota. The title comes from Ota's practice of offering a cup of coffee to every visitor along with a pencil with which to write him notes.  For more information about Kohi to Enpitsu (or Coffee and A Pencil in English) visit here.
