Wakamusha + Q&A (15)

Wakamusha + Q&A

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Ryutaro Ninomiya.


Wataru (Ryota Bando), a quiet factory worker, Eiji (Rion Takahashi), a hot-blooded restaurant employee, and Mitsunori (Naoya Shimizu), a seemingly gentle carer, are childhood friends. On a late autumn afternoon, with too much time on their hands, they unleash their anger at the at the petty transgressions and discriminations of people in the street, in the name of 'Reformation'.


This new film by Ryutaro Ninomiya is the story of young people resisting the future, while questioning their aimless lives.


His second feature film, Sweating the Small Stuff, in which he also starred, was the only Japanese entry in the feature film category at the 70th Locarno International Film Festival. His film Dreaming In Between was officially selected at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, as part of ACID Cannes 2023.


This is the very first title of the new film label New Counter Film.
