“The Man Who Might Have Been”
A Film About Canadian Diplomat Herbert Norman
The Japan Society and the Canada Japan Society of Toronto are honoured to present a profound and moving documentary film about an important Canadian diplomat in our country’s historical relationship with Japan. “The Man Who Might Have Been” is a 1998 film from the National Film Board of Canada [“NFB”] that poignantly portrays the life and death of Herbert Norman.
The film weaves interviews conducted with historians, diplomats and secret service personnel, dramatic scenes filmed in Tokyo, Toronto, and Ottawa, and remarkable historical stills and stock footage spanning decades. The final product is a film that reminds Canadians of their place on the world stage, the power of history, and the challenges of fully understanding a life lived by an extraordinary man raised and trained not to reveal his feelings. We are grateful to many for the opportunity of showing this telling film and, in particular, to the NFB and Yoshio Nakatani.
He presentation will take place in the offices of McMillan LLP on the 44th floor of the Bay/Wellington Tower, Brookfield Place, 181 Bay Street, Toronto beginning at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013. Hors d’oeuvres will be served followed by the showing of the ninety minute film. There will be time for discussion and interaction with fellow attendees.
The cost of the event will be $20.
Please RSVP by email to Jeff Harju (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your attendance by October 19th to attend.
