Plan 75

Short, Sci-Fi, Drama 18m 2018

Set in the not-so-distant future where Japan’s increasing elderly populations have become detrimental to the country’s growth, this dystopian short film imagines a government initiative in which retired seniors—and other citizens deemed unproductive—are efficiently and systematically eliminated on a volunteer basis. Filmed as part of the omnibus feature film Ten Years Japan (2018), director Chie Hayakawa’s powerful work of speculative fiction offers pointed political commentary and a chilling vision of the potential future of so-called developed nations wherein the value of human lives is measured by the bottom line.

“Quietly powerful.” —Screen Daily
