Executive produced by the acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, Ten Years Japan is an anthology of five short science fiction films set in an imagined Japan ten years from now. Like a Japanese Black Mirror, the shorts explore issues such as the ageing population, digital surveillance, “Big Data,” environmental disaster, and rising militarism.
Varying in mood, style and artistic approach, the anthology offers fascinating insights into the challenges and opportunities faced by contemporary Japan.
We’re honoured that Chie Hayakawa, Director of the short film Plan 75 (a complelling vision of how Japan might address the aging population issue) will be joining us for an in-person Q&A after this screening.
