Old Narcissus

Japan 2017, 21 min

Yamazaki, a narcissistic and gay picture book writer for seniors, struggles to bear with his deforming, aging figure. While at play with young and aesthetic Leo, Yamazaki takes a fall and discloses his agony of aging, but it does not strike young Leo. Left in solitude, Yamazaki runs toward self-harming acts finding partnership with others less pleasant than himself.
Regardless it’s complex character setting, this must-see film has won 10 titles in domestic and overseas film festivals in 2018.

Blurred Citylights

Japan 2016, 18 min

A strange woman ghost dressed in a swimsuit haunts Kikukawa, a fallen photographer. He comes to realize that the ghost is Emiri Tachibana, an uncelebrated bikini model that he once photographed. Kikukawa, destitute after his lover drove him out of their house, and Tachibana, forlorn and stuck in the living world. Two lost individuals share their true feelings in the streetlights of Tokyo.
An offbeat fantasy with Kojima Keitany Love’s soft melting tune in the background setting the scenes of the city night.


Japan 2007, 20 min

“Qwer”, a young online gamer, encounters an avatar “Ame” one day in an area fallen to ruins since the loss of its owner. A dialogue-based drama that runs in the form of chat logs within the gaming world setting.
An ambitious work that portrays the existence of human lives made conspicuous in the contrast of the non-physical world where scenes take place in the game screen. An unanticipated masterpiece by a director who actually spent his late twenties hooked up as an online gamer.

Homosocial Dancing

Japan 2019, 11 min

A feeble and coward student boy has a crush on a madonna worshipped by a group of hip boys. He makes an attempt to ask her out only to get rejected but it raises an unexpected commotion among the group.
An ambitious work that broaches on the themes of misogyny (dislike of women) and homo-sociality distinctive in the male society that emerge from conflicts and solidarity between men over a single woman!
