James Creedon
"Thanks to your Noble Shadow"

 This Storytelling Evening features James Creedon. Originally from Ireland he has lived in Paris for the past 11 years and is a TV journalist and broadcaster at France 24 television. In 2013, he began recording the memories of an elderly relative who had spent 75 years in Japan as a missionary nun. This evolved into making the documentary “Thanks to your Noble Shadow” about Jennie O’ Sullivan – or Sister Paschal – one of Ireland’s last Catholic missionary nuns. She spent 75 years in Japan, returning to her homeland at the age of 98. She was the first English teacher at one of the country’s most prestigious girls’ schools, Denenchofu Futaba in Tokyo. Amongst her past pupils is Japan’s Crown Princess Masako.

As her much younger cousin, James was fascinated by her story and its epic quality. In 1935, as a young woman, she journeyed by boat to a strange land on the other side of the world, not speaking the language and thinking she would never return home.  James will recount the story of this remarkable woman and his journey in capturing the remarkable lucidity and energy of her narrative.

The dinner menu will be  assortment of Maki, Temaki & California Rolls as well as Miso Soup, Chicken Teriyaki, other items and for dessert an Irish Angel Food Cake with Green Tea Ice Cream. This Storytelling Evening will be chez moi. Codes sent with RSVP.

                                                                                                               Bernadette
