Wire-tapping in Japan

JAPAN / 1999 / Japanese / Color / Video / 9 min

Director: Kobayashi Atsushi (Dengeki Eionsha)

Public opinion has been shaken by this bad law which along with progress on the even more insidious national numerical registration system allows the government great powers to watch the people.
