School Radio to Major Tom (2021)

  • Short, Experimental
  • 10min

Winner of the Entertainment Award at the venerable Pia Film Festival, Takuya Chisaka’s short is set in the summer 1989 (and produced on small-gauge film to match the period), with the shy, space-loving student Eisuke recording a radio drama in his school’s recording studio. When a girl attending night school begins recording responses, they create an imaginative audio relay that reaches the stars.

Streaming worldwide from August 20-September 2 as part of JAPAN CUTS: Festival of New Japanese Film 2021
