Since returning from screenings in Taiwan 2 weeks ago (INFO), I have been chained to a computer within the depths of the edit suite (thus my relative silence on social media).  I have just handed over the edit to my filmmaking partner Adrian (a.k.a. Uchujin), and we are really excited to be able to share with you more about the film, called MSM, over the next couple of months.

In the meantime, I find myself writing this on the way to the airport.  This time I am on my way to Germany where the German premier of my film '-1287' will take place in the 15th annual Nippon Connection Film Festival in Frankfurt (INFO).  It is an honour to again be invited to screen at Nippon Connection, where the World Premier of my film 'A2-B-C' took place two years ago (INFO).  

'-1287' (WEBSITE) will be screening on the final day of the festival, on Sunday, June 7, 14:45 in the Naxoshalle Kino (INFO).

Following the Nippon Connection film festival, I will be traveling to Munich, where my films 'In the Grey Zone" (2012), 'A2-B-C' (2013), '-1287' (2014) and several of my short films will be screening in the "New Asian Cinema" program of the Werkstatt Kino 2015 (INFO).

Thank you all so very much for your continued encouragement and support of my work.

Much Peace and Gratitude,
Tokyo, Japan
