A Japanese TV crew is in the Cayman Islands to interview a local Japanese resident for her work here in the field of art.
ABC Asahi Director Yamashita Koji and his crew are in town to profile Mari Abi, a local producer, editor and photographer with production company Geezum productions.
Mr. Koji directs a reality show which translates to, “Japans peoples in the villages of the world.” It looks at successful Japanese in other parts of the world, which lead him to Mrs. Abi.[translated] “So there is a very popular TV programme to find or discover Japaneses living overseas from Japan and further from Japan and in this time we found a Japanese in Cayman,” said Mr. Koji.
Mrs. Abi says she was honored when the hit TV show contacted her.
“I was in shock because I knew this TV programme and I dreamed of being on the programme and it’s finally coming to me,” said Mrs Abi.
She researches local Cayman stories and makes animated cartoons to reflect those stories.
