◎Director Kosuke Sakoda
Massage from Kosuke Sakoda
Some director said he is awkward to live. He has the power more than others to trust someone but on the other hand, he has the power more than others not to trust, too. Both are in him together, so he is brittle and it is his style as a writer.
I wrote a scenario. There is a boy half Filipino. There is a boy who is made fun by everyone. And those two boys love a woman named Shoko. Three person that awkward to live. I wrote the story about like that three. I wrote who is also awkward to live. The two boys told a lie. And Shoko also has a secret. The two boys told a lie to all over the world to save Shoko. Awkward to live, actually everyone has such a side, and feels weak and painful. I want to tell it and understand each other who watch this movie.
“I tell a lie to all over the world for my important person.” This is perhaps wrong, but this is also to trust to save someone. The three who are in this movie. Could you be an accomplice for them? Could you be an accomplice for everyone who watch this movie and us?
Kosuke Sakoda: He was born in Kure, Hiroshima in 1977. He directed “This window, other side” while he was in the New cinema workshop. His direction that bringing out shaky mid to expressions and the unique sense of images were admired. “Inside of…” the movie he directed after the first one won multiple awards at the home and abroad film festivals. However during preparing the next film, he became depression. After medical treatment for three years, he came back with “Mistress of my dad”. It was got invitation screening by 12 film festivals in 3 countries. And also, he won prizes in Indian and American film festivals. It released at Shinjuku K’s cinema, the seventh art theater in Osaka and Hiroshima Yokogawa cinema. This was an exceptional debut as a medium long movie. He’s been in Kure since 2014.
Yuji Yokoyama (as father of Kishimoto): One day, I was asked to play in the movie by Kosuke sending the scenario. The story was so Kosuke like snuggle up to someone. It was about the boys having tender heart. I was touched my heart. And also he said, “I want to direct you never seen before!” Of course I said “YES!” Why don’t I accept such an exciting offer? I’m looking forward to staring filming.
