Event Description:

Director Ken Eng screens and answers questions about his fascinating documentary on Japanese baseball, "Kokoyakyu: High School Baseball." 

In Japan, baseball is not a pastime — it's a national obsession. And for many of the country's youth, the sport has become a rite of passage, epitomized by the national high school baseball tournament known simply as "Koshien." Four thousand teams enter, but only 49 are chosen to compete in the championship that grips the nation for two weeks every August.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies, Japanese Student Association, Department of Communication and Journalism, and Asian Studies Program.
