The web movie project Between Yesterday & Tomorrow was launched two weeks after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami on March 11, 2011. More than thirty filmmakers each created a five-minute movie based upon written instructions. This omnibus is made up of new works created by these same filmmakers in 2016.
[Director’s Statement] The omnibus Between Yesterday & Tomorrow (2011–) has been screened at film festivals in Japan and overseas, beginning with YIDFF 2011. I believe this work speaks to each viewer’s memory differently. Last year, five years after the disater, we asked the same directors for new films, for a new omnibus. Hence eight different stories—four each from 2011 and 2016—are cut together in chronological order.
Works include The Shepherd’s Story / Shinjuku 2009 + Ogaki 2010 (2011, YIDFF 2011, collaboration with Maeda Shinjiro).
