HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO... TO FOLLOW YOUR PASSION?
STARRING: John "Kaizan" Neptune
DIRECTED BY: David Neptune
PRODUCED BY: David Neptune, Chiaki Yanagimoto, Mike McNamara
Directed by John’s son David Neptune and produced by our team of filmmakers in Los Angeles, the film examines what it takes to cross cultural borders and become a master of this traditional art form. John has innovated on the shakuhachi’s design and developed new sounds never heard before with the instrument. His efforts have been praised by most but criticized by some. John has lived in Japan for over 40 years, focusing single-mindedly on the shakuhachi to further delve into the infinite possibilities of sound. But what are the sacrifices involved with becoming a true master?
This story told from David’s perspective will take audiences on an unforgettable journey through personal discoveries, humorous interludes and musical epiphanies.
