Crazy Credits

The credit roll for Pray For Japan runs 9 minutes, not counting the end sequence which was done as a temporary credit roll for the version submitted to Sundance.

A great documentary showing how the people of Japan are trying to rebuild their lives
17 March 2012 | by (Torrance, CA) – See all my reviews

Was able to see this at the AMC theaters in Torrance, California and was excited to see it. The film is split into four parts talking about Family, Shelter, School and Volunteers. Every story that was told was amazing hear. Of course some were more sad than others so prepare tissues. It's very refreshing to see a documentary like this; showing us how the people in the affected areas are working towards the future and not looking back to the past. Not many people outside of Japan really know how the rebuilding process is going, so after watching this you can have an understanding at what the Japanese people are doing and are still currently doing. I would strongly recommend this film to everyone.
