Seeking members with backgrounds overseas to create “films of the city” in various locations around Tokyo

This project tours various areas of Tokyo, creating “films of the city” with people who (also) have backgrounds overseas. Our third stop, following “Ikebukuro” (#1), “Katsushika” (#2), “Kita-ku” (#3) is …… “Shinjuku”! Come join us as we tour the city with people of many backgrounds, and create our original “Shinjuku” film.

About the workshop

Members, through a three-day workshop (the first will be held online), will reflect on their own backgrounds in various ways, using photography and audio, while walking through the city. Forming groups with other people from various backgrounds, we will collectively discuss and cooperate with each other to create a short film. On the final day of the workshop, a public screening will be held to showcase the works produced by each participant.

*In response to the COVID-19 situation: activities will be conducted in small groups, and fieldwork, shoots, etc. will be conducted avoiding close contact. Depending on the situation, we may decide to switch how the workshops are held between face-to-face and online.
*Program contents are subject to change.
