The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
JAPAN | 89 minutes | 2019
A young woman discovers that a sex tape made without her knowledge is circulating online. Paranoia takes over, along with a sense of injustice. Her sudden terror of video triggers a downward spiral where she loses all social bearings. Shot in magnificent black-and-white, reminiscent of Chris Marker or Noboru Tanaka, the new Miyazaki (Tourism, Yamato California) deals with sexual abuse in the form of cyber-rape. The film forcefully dissects the overwhelmingly traumatic effects of a crime that fractures reality in a society under constant surveillance. Magnetic and harrowing.WORLD PREMIEREQ&A with filmmaker DAISUKE MIYAZAKI and actress TOMONA HIROTA on October 11th and 12thWith the support of the Japan Foundation Toronto
