From 22 to 27 November Michael Harbauer visited the KINEKO International Children's Film Festival in Tokyo. He was accompanied by Arved Friese, the actor from "The Legend of Timm Thaler or the Boy Who Sold His Laughter". The film won the Children's and Youth Film Award of the Goethe-Institut at SCHLINGEL 2017 and was now screened in Japan. Both festivals have been cooperating with each other for several years and show the respective main prize winners in their programmes. The German film also won an award in Far East - the special prize of the children's jury. The presentation in Tokyo was supported by the Goethe-Institut and German Films as well as the Saxon State Chancellery and the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung MDM.
