It is the love that can make miracles. It is a source of infinite power which sits deep in everyone’s heart.
Yasuko Iwasaki: Film producer and president of Heart of Miracle, an incorporated non-profit organization.
I have been filming a documentary of Miyapu (Toshiya Miyata) who had a brain stem hemorrhage but is recovering remarkably day by day. The filming started four months after his stroke. I clearly remember the moment when I decided to create this documentary film.
Kakko-chan (Katsuko Yamamoto) who is a close friend of Miyapu, has been commuting everyday to the hospital where Miyapu is. She started contacting me often by mobile phone on her way to and from the hospital. At that time everyone thought he would be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.
However, Kakko-chan always said, “He’ll get better.” What she told me was always very positive, “His thumb moved a bit today”, “Tears came out from Miyapu’s eyes while I was talking to him” or “I know he regained consciousness and knows everything” I felt something was happening, something very precious. And I instinctively said to Kakko-chan, “Will you please videotape him or even just take some photos? I wish I could do it by myself everyday.”
Three years have passed since I started to shoot the Miyapu film. In the beginning his eyes were never open and it looked as if he could not hear and feel anything at all, while Kakko-chan said “Miyapu listens to everything.” Well, look at him now. He can communicate with us using “Let’s Chat”, a communicating device. He’s recovering further day by day.
I sometimes wonder how he would be now without Kakko-chan’s support. I could never imagine how terrible it would be if we were immobile, couldn’t even move our eyelids when we regain consciousness on the bed. It is beyond my imagination.
Even in that situation, Miyapu found some hope and went forward persistently. I think this would not have been possible without someone who had no doubt about the potential of his life and power, and had been with him for support. Interaction of human energy created harmony and made the impossible possible. It is the love that can make miracles, and is a source of infinite power which sits deep in everyone’s heart.
I asked Miyapu, “Were you scared when you couldn’t communicate what you were thinking or feeling while you regained your consciousness?” He said to me, “Not at all, because Kakko-chan was with me and I knew she would help me.”
The Snow White project is the project which will help those who remain in the darkness of solitude all around the world. And it will support those people to regain happiness in their lives. I wish that everyone will be brimming over with happiness to support each other all over the world. I will do my best to support this project. I also will do my best to produce my film and contribute to the project.
