Film screening: Big in Japan, Melbourne University 
In 2013, documentary filmmakers, best mates and Trinity College alumni (2007) David Elliot-Jones, Lachlan McLeod and Louis Dai travelled to Japan to try and better understand the concept of fame. The result is Big in Japan, a hilarious documentary about living in Japan, with David later becoming a Japanese celebrity.

To celebrate the success of their film and to showcase this talented trio, Trinity will host a screening of Big in Japan, with all proceeds from the screening going directly to ILBIJERRI Torres Strait Islander Theatre Cooperative.

Japanese style street food will be available for purchase and there'll be live music to help set the mood.
 

There will also be a Q&A session following the screening with two of the filmmakers.

It will be held 17th May, 2018, at Trinity College, Melbourne University.
