"Tsuyako" is a USC thesis film that will be shooting in Osaka, Japan this Spring. Since we will be shooting out of the country, we wont be able to use the equipment and other resources our school would provide for local thesis projects. We would love your support in helping raise money to make this film a reality. Opportunity to donate towards Tsuyako will be held on Feb.10 at Betty. Though its not mandatory, we'd appreciate any contribution. So please come out, dance, drink, meet our team and see what Tsuyako is all about.
ABOUT THE FILM
film's website www.tsuyakothefilm.com
During Post-War Japan, Tsuyako lives a demanding life as a mill factory worker, obedient wife, and loving mother. When an old female lover, Yoshie, pays a surprise visit, she reignites a passion in Tsuyako - one that Tsuyako has repressed herself from feeling again, and has kept hidden since their separation. After Yoshie witnesses how Tsuyako’s new family mistreats her, she begs Tsuyako to leave with her to Tokyo, to live the life that they had always dreamt of together. Tsuyako must choose between her duties as a woman and the promise of freedom, while struggling to maintain the Japanese traditions of culture and respect of her family.
