Show Me Shorts: Japanese Focus
A showcase of Japanese short films from the Show Me Shorts 2019 programme.
"The seven short films in this collection explore the lives of modern Japanese. What are their concerns, fears, hopes and dreams? We delve into a variety of topics with animated goats, a comedic search for coins, an obsession with beards, a comic book come to life, a twisted fairy tale, and a documentary about sumo-wrestling women. The movies demonstrate a wide breadth of new filmmaking talent in Japan’s creative sector." (Show Me Shorts)
