SHOW ME SHORTS: Japanese Focus

Show Me Shorts is Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. Show Me Shorts is a competitive Academy Awards-accredited festival that screens in cinemas nationwide each Spring.

The seven short films in this collection explore the lives of modern Japanese. What are their concerns, fears, hopes and dreams? We delve into a variety of topics with animated goats, a comedic search for coins, an obsession with beards, a comic book come to life, a twisted fairy tale, and a documentary about sumo-wrestling women. The movies demonstrate a wide breadth of new filmmaking talent in Japan’s creative sector.
