On his way to Fantasia, Mr.
Kaneko made his first trip to Chicago. In addition
to visiting some friends and seeing the sights of an
American city that has fascinated him since youth,
GMK screened as part of G-Fest X at the Pickwick
Theater in Park Ridge, Illinois. Mr. Kaneko was
pleased with the venue, the audience, and the praise
given the film both prior to and following its
performance. The next morning, Mr. Kaneko stopped by
to catch up with some old friends who were attending
the event. The rest of his time was spent
sightseeing, catching new American films, and
sampling the local food. Chicago and the hospitality
of its people receive two solid thumbs up from Mr.
