Short documentary on a small Japanese village
"Yadorigi: A Village in Portraits" short doc trailer: http://vimeo.com/41923027
I created a short documentary profiling some characters in a small village in Japan in 2011, with the intention of showing an often unseen side of the country. A friend of mine who is part of the transition town movement in Japan, suggested that this film would be a particular interest to the transition community. While not strictly a "transition town" itself, the characters share many of the same philosophies championed by the transition movement (sustainibility, organic farming, diversity).
I'm keen to expand this story, and document the other characters in the village, making a broader picture of rural life in Japan, and am hoping to get support from people interested in these topics.
For UK resident, there will be a free screening of the film in Loughborough, Leicestershire on the 4th June 2012. For more details, or to show support, please visit the facebook page and click "like":
