MRS. JUDO, featuring a post-film Q&A with SF-based filmmaker Yuriko Gamo Romer, and film curator Jeff M. Giordano (Local Filmmaker Showcase)
Throwing thousands of years of tradition to the wind, Keiko Fukuda chose to follow her own destiny and become the highest ranking woman in judo. 'Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful,' a 66-minute documentary film, tells the inspirational story of Fukuda's lifelong journey spanning four continents, nine decades and two distinct cultures to overcome adversity and ultimately transform into a living legend. Today, at 98, Fukuda holds the highest rank available in judo, the tenth degree. She also continues teaching judo three days a week from her San Francisco dojo and is the last living link to judo's origins.

This event features a post-film Q&A with SF-based filmmaker Yuriko Gamo Romer and film curator Jeff M. Giordano! Yuriko will also present a clip from her new, in-production documentary -- which explores the U.S. and Japan shared love of baseball, and the connections between the two countries through both good times and bad.
