North American Premiere

Drawing from his own experiences, seasoned adult video director Kei Morikawa adapted his witty comedy that he originally wrote for the stage into a delightfully titillating feature. Starring real-life adult video actresses, comedic exchanges and tender moments tumble into one another as actors and crew run in and out of the dressing room of a porn shoot–a shoestring budget Day for Night of the Japanese adult video world. Anchored by non-AV actress Aki Morita’s assured performance as the level-headed makeup artist, the film embraces its clever conceit of never once leaving the dressing room.

Japan. 2015. 86 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kei Morikawa. With Beni Ito, Aki Morita, Nanami Kawakami, Riri Kuribayashi.

Grand Prix winning film at 2015 Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival.
