CJRC to Screen New Japanese Feature Film about a Punk-Rocker who Becomes a Buddhist Monk, Friday, April 27, 8-10 pm
ABRAXAS (Director, Naoki Kato, 2010)
In his youth, Jonen was a punk-rock musician. Now he’s a Buddhist monk with a wife and five-year-old son. During his career-day speech at a local high school, however, Jonen has a public breakdown that leads to a deep depression when he realizes the importance of music to his life. In an attempt to raise Jonen’s spirits, the compassionate chief monk suggests he play a live show. As he plans for the concert, Jonen faces challenges from past loss, small-town resistance, and the possibility of alienating his family.
