The movie “Dogs, Cats and Humans 2”(Inu to Neko to Ningen to, 2)”

I went to see the premier of the movie, 『Dogs, Cats and Humans 2』. The director of the movie, 『Dogs, Cats and Humans』, and the producer, Motoharu Iida, joined the event.

Here’s the link for previous movie report>>

The movie is about people whose lives changed abruptly after the great Tohoku earthquake in 2011 and the animals who have been struggling with the disaster. It also looks at the future ahead for the animals.

The agenda was quite different from the previous one, but the message was delivered directly to the audience just like in the first. In the previous movie, Mr. Iida, who never thought about animals in Japan, started questioning things related to animals here. He was asked by a woman who looked after cats to make a movie. This time, Mr.Shishido flew to Miyagi, which is his hometown, just after the earthquake. But the city changed completely and he had no words. Through his own confusion and conversations with people in the affected area, he began to see how the lives of animals and people all changed.


It has been more than 2 years since the earthquake and the topic is no longer in the news everyday. However, the movie reminded me that the earthquake disaster is not over yet.
Sometime it is “tough” to face the reality, but I think it is also important to share it.

“Knowing” is the first step.
It doesn’t matter if you love animals or not, please go to the movie with your friends.
It was not a sad, crying movie.

And Mr. Iida said, this movie is even better when you watch it the second time.
Is that true? I will go to see it again sometime.

Theater information>>

We rescued 600 animals back in 1995 after the Hanshin earthquake. The longest one spent 12 years at ARK.
Among 200 dogs rescued after the Tohoku earthquake in 2011, still 13 dogs are living at ARK.
Some of them plan to go back to their original owners this year. But for the rest of them, they may have to spend more time in ARK. Our first priority is to consider their QOL (quality of life).

This is the oldest dog rescued from the Tohoku earthquake, Kuri. Look at the gorgeous fur blowing in the wind!
