i -Documentary of the Journalist-
Politics and press are tightly interwoven in Japan through the so-called ‘press clubs’ (kisha kurabu). MOCHIZUKI Isoko of the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper is one of the journalists who fights for more independent news-gathering. Her trademark is the fiery way in which she questions politicians and their spokespeople. Documentary maker MORI Tatsuya follows her while she reports on a scandal surrounding prime minister ABE Shinzo. The film presents a clear image of the problems and challenges that Japanese journalists currently face.
