COMPLY+-ANCE

Takumi Saitoh takes on the roles of director, screenwriter, cinematographer and actor in this surreal investigation into the nature of “compliance.” In contemporary Japan, obsessive self-regulation and risk aversion have paralyzed the society’s ability for self-expression. This theme is explored in a hallucinatory triptych of narratives featuring experimental indie filmmaking, rap music, rudimentary puppet theatre and an increasingly bizarre attempt at an interview with actress Yuki Akiyama (One Cut of the Dead). A deliriously disorienting film for those looking for something completely different.
