OF LOVE & LAW + Dir Q&A

Dir: Hikaru Toda
Japan / United Kingdom / France / 2017 / 94mins

“In Japan, people tend to hide anything that is inconvenient”, says artist Rokudenashiko, charged with obscenity for her vagina sculptures. Rokudenashiko’s court case is one that openly gay lawyers Kazu and Fumi are fighting for, alongside a teacher fired for not standing during the national anthem and a young woman who was born outside of the traditional family structure, so doesn’t legally exist. This intimate portrait of the loving relationship between Kazu and Fumi follows their journey to building a family, while fighting for human rights for all. In a society where it’s risky to go against the grain and everybody is expected to “read the air”, the pair are a rock of compassion.

The screening on Sun 24 Feb will be held in the Renoir screen and followed by a director Q&A.

The event will be hosted by Mia Bays, the director of Birds Eye View.
