We are very excited to invite you to celebrate the launch of our documentary, LOST & FOUND.

Join us for a fundraising extravaganza featuring original artwork from the film (by the magnificent Kathryn Ruppert-Dazai), tsunami items soon to be reunited with their owners in Japan, and a media centre unveiling our trailer and scenes from the film.

Have a drink at the cash bar, check out the film, and get the chance to purchase limited-time offers from Hot Docs such as Festival Tickets and exclusive Party Passes.

This is a free event and all are welcome!

Come and witness first hand the epic endeavor that is underway and support us in reuniting objects from the 2011 tsunami with their owners.


LOST & FOUND, a film by John Choi & Nicolina Lanni


LOST & FOUND follows the epic endeavor underway to reunite objects lost in the 2011 Japanese tsunami. Strangers, continents apart, are coming together to salvage the memories amidst the debris. Join us as we meet the beachcombers, oceanographers, kayakers, and environmentalists who will travel back to Japan to return the lost belongings to their rightful owners.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
