Filmmaker Talk: Naotaro Endo, director of Tsukiji Wonderland
17 March 2017, London
For those who were able to see the film at ICA and even those who have not, it will be a great opportunity to hear about documentary filmmaking in Japan as well as more about Tsukiji, the world's largest fish market that is currently facing closure -- the topic which inspired this remarkable film.
Endo began shooting at Tsukiji in spring 2014 when speculation of the market's closure began. Shot over the course of an entire year, Endo captures the extraordinary operations of this iconic fish market. Although the future of Tsukiji still hangs in the balance, Endo has ensured that its legacy will never be forgotten.
