"Kohei Nagano, my film partner, on-again/ off-again lover and dear friend of 24 years died suddenly of natural causes in late November 2020.

He helped support free-thinking, Canadian artists like myself. He enjoyed the company of beautiful, creative and fun people. He collected Canadian art and lived in a humble, world traveler-kind-of-way. He was a proud, thoughtful Canadian.

I called him Kiwi, some called him Ko, but all that ever met him, called him a friend. He was easy to like and love. Kohei Nagano will be forever missed."
