Talented young directors in Tokyo contribute their films to the Immoral Film Festival, presented by the independent distributor Image Rings. The results are some of the most intriguing films of recent years: provocative, perplexing and always throttling the border between fiction and reality. Part of Nippon Connection Festival on Tour, shorts in this program include:
Miku has just turned 23 and takes the day off of work in this documentary mixed with fiction. 2006, 22 min. Directed by Tetsuya Mariko.
Dear Ms. Ogi (Haikei ogi chikage sama)
Murakami seeks out legendary wildman director Kenji Onishi, and arranges a meeting with director Yoko Oguchi, which turns unexpectedly intense. 2006, 32 min. By Kenji Murakami.
How I Produced a Cherry Boy (Dotei wo prodyusu)
The director’s lovesick friend is still a virgin at 23. Matsue devises a plan to deflower him–with cameras rolling. 2006, 32 min. By Tetsuaki Matsue.
Tickets: Free admission. First-come, first-served.
Nippon Connection Festival on Tour was compiled by Nippon Connection, the Japanese film festival in Frankfurt, Germany. Since 2000, Nippon Connection is fast becoming one of the leading festivals devoted to contemporary Japanese films. http://www.nipponconnection.de
