The Weekend Japanese Film Show

It’s a Summer Film!




(MATSUMOTO Soushi / 2021 / 98min / P13)


Hadashi, a high schooler, is obsessed with old Japanese samurai films. When her film club rejects her samurai film project, she decides to gather her friends and craft the film on her own terms. She convinces a reluctant young man into playing the lead and they begin their shoot but is faced with one problem after another. Will they be able to finish the film? What’s more is that this young man might be from the future?


An innovative coming-of-age masterpiece that incorporates elements of science fiction while providing a fresh look at young people who are serious about filmmaking. Packed with action, romance and suspense—this film exudes with so much passion towards the movies that any film fan is bound to get excited by it. ITO Marika, a former member of a famous idol group who is also active as an artist, plays the dynamic Hadashi, and her charm shines in the film. Look forward to the emotional final scene!
