Life - Untitled (15) + Recorded Introduction from Yamada Kana

theatre

Part of: The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2022 - What Lies Beneath: The Intricate Representations of a ‘Dark Mind’ in Japanese Cinema.

This screening will be preceded by a recorded introduction from director Yamada Kana.

Film details
Adapting her own stage play, Kana Yamada’s incisive and comic directorial debut is a multifaceted portrayal of women’s lives intersecting with a Tokyo escort service. The dynamic group is anchored by Kano (a breakout role for Sairi Ito of The Naked Director), who works in the rundown office and watches as the women wait for calls and make visits to local love hotels.

Portraying an industry frequently exploited in Japanese media for objectifying scenes of titillation or abjection, Yamada shows sex workers’ dignity and desires amidst the misogyny and violence pervading society, updating the humanistic impulses of Kenji Mizoguchi to address the contemporary alienation of labour with humour and drama.
