IGUCHI Nami, When Kids Make Movies, 2021 / 116 min. / Dialogue in Japanese (with English subtitles) 

With works like Don’t Laugh at My Romance or The Tale of Nishino, filmmaker IGUCHI Nami created much talked-about movies that delicately portray complex feelings between human individuals. Presented at the Yebisu lnternational Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2023 is a special program of new and older works that convey Iguchi’s drive and passion toward filmmaking. In addition to a showcase of recent works that mark the director’s first attempt in the documentary genre (IGUCHI Nami [1]), the program also includes screenings of early efforts such as Iguchi’s first directed movie (IGUCHI Nami [2]).

When Kids Make Movies is Iguchi’s first documentary film, made after the “Children Meet Cinema” workshop that was held in Miyazaki in December 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. It follows twelve children who met for the first time, and subsequently spent three days shooting and screening a movie full of scenes that show how anyone can be protagonist.
