What is a Cinema Portrait?
The story of the film “New Tokyo Tour” is based on the many personal episodes of the members who participated in its production. These episodes were gathered through the “Cinema Portrait” workshops, held in the first half of the project. During the workshop, the members walked around Ueno, Okachimachi, and Yushima areas, and recorded their personal memories of the scenery they encountered, using photographs and audio, to create their own “Cinema Portraits”. These works were reflected in various scenes throughout the film “New Tokyo Tour”.
