School Wars: Hero @ Japan Information Center

"At a high school that has suffered from violence for years, Shuji Yamagami (Shoei), a former rugby star, is hired on as a physical education teacher. He soon finds that many of the school's troubles lie within the members of the rugby team that he is brought on to coach. Making matters worse is that the faculty has turned a blind eye to the hostility that has taken a greater influence on the students then their teachings. Yamagami dedicates himself to turning things around." Japanese Dangerous Minds, anyone? And yes, it's based on a true story. Presented by Cinema/Chicago's International Connections program. Free, but RSVP to 6pm. Japan Information Center, Olympia Centre, 737 N Michigan Avenue, suite 1000.
