Kazuya Ashizawa
Japan / 2019 / 19min
In Japanese with Eng Sub

Living in Motomiya shi in Fukushima, Japan, Shuji Tamura inherited his father's 100-year old cinema – the Motomiya Theatre – at the age of 21. Sadly the booming TV industry eventually put the small theatre out of business and Tamura was forced to shut it down and look for another living. For half a century, the theatre was left deserted until Tamura retired and gave the theatre's vintage projector a new lease on life.

Director's Profile
Kazuya Ashizawa was born in 1957 and has worked as a civil servant. After retiring early, he taught himself filmmaking and has been recording people and events around him.

Director's Note
By making a film about people around me, I hope to illuminate what modern Japan is all about.
