U.S. distributor sets release for celebrated GLOBAL streaming
(LOS ANGELES, CA — October 21, 2020) — Ocean Mountain announces the highly anticipated premiere date for WORDS CAN’T GO THERE, recipient of Best Feature Documentary and Best Score at Show Low Film Festival 2020, streaming in North America, UK, and Australia and 64 countries worldwide.
WORDS CAN’T GO THERE is a documentary feature film depicting the extraordinary journey of musician John Kaizan Neptune, a California surfer turned Japanese traditional bamboo flute master, as told through his son’s perspective.
John Kaizan Neptune was a young California surfer when he discovered the shakuhachi, a traditional Japanese bamboo flute, in Hawaii, which set him on his life path. As an outsider in 1970s Japan, he dived into tradition headfirst, facing and overcoming the prejudice that comes with being a Caucasian pursuing a traditional artform.
He played jazz and classical music, discovered new sounds with the shakuhachi and composed pieces to incorporate his discoveries. He began touring the world, crossing Europe and North America including notable venues in Los Angeles and New York and ultimately received the prestigious best album award from the Agency of Cultural Affairs in Japan for his album “Bamboo”. It was the first jazz album and first award by a non-Japanese artist.
John even began crafting the instrument himself and blew open the potential of this ancient instrument in a completely new way. Directed by his son David Neptune, this personal story delves deep into the life of an artist and a family man and ultimately the sacrifices he made to cross cultural borders and become a pivotal figure in the evolution of this rare instrument.
Ocean Mountain has set November 20th, 2020 as the VOD streaming release for the film. WORDS CAN’T GO THERE, available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
