Japan’s entry in the “Ten Year International Project”—launched by the success of Hong Kong’s Ten Years (2015)—is a similarly dystopian speculative fiction anthology film that ponders the country’s near future. Executive produced by Hirokazu Kore-eda, the film features short works by five emerging filmmakers set in an imagined Japan ten years from now that touch upon a range of pressing issues, including: the aging population, digital surveillance, “Big Data,” nuclear disasters and rising militarism. Varying in mood, style and artistic approach, the films in Ten Years Japan altogether offer fascinating insight into contemporary Japan’s national psyche.
2018. 98 min. Directed by Akiyo Fujimura, Chie Hayakawa, Yusuke Kinoshita, Megumi Tsuno, Kei Ishikawa.
