MADE IN JAPAN tells the remarkable story of Tomi Fujiyama, Japan’s first female country music star, and her journey to fulfill her dream of taking Nashville’s legendary Grand Ole Opry stage one more time. Director Josh Bishop (THE DWARVENAUT) chronicles Tomi’s career, from the USO circuit to Columbia Records and Las Vegas headliner status, culminating with a knockout 1964 Opry performance where she followed Johnny Cash and got standing ovations. More than forty years later, Tomi and her husband set out for the U.S. in hopes that she can give the Opry an encore. Nashville has changed, but Tomi hasn’t. From executive producer Morgan Spurlock (SUPERSIZE ME), narrated by Elijah Wood, with a stunning score by Kaki King, MADE IN JAPAN is a funny, poignant cross-cultural trip through music, marriage, and an unlikely country girl’s dreams.

INDIECAN ENTERTAINMENT is a Canadian distribution company that services not just up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers, but also those indies making films in a lower budget bracket who have otherwise virtually no chance to shine in a market of big studios, distributors and exhibitors.

“Seeing Canadian films should become a regular occurrence and not a one-time event. We need to not only support Canadian production but also encourage the viewing of Canadian films by Canadian audiences. We owe it to our industry, our culture and our country.” — Avi Federgreen
