The film festival “Thoughts of a shrinking society”, held as a related event to the special exhibition “Evidences and Messages from a Shrinking Society”, will include a series of movie screenings and talk sessions.
The festival will present screenings of four carefully selected and excellent documentary films which capture the drastic changes that are fundamentally changing the state of Japanese society and culture, as presented in the exhibition, including the dysfunction, collapse, and reduction of existing structures in various regions, and the declining population of modern Japanese society.
Each screening will be followed by a dialogue (talk session) between the documentary's director and the viewers to provide an opportunity to learn about the current state of Japan's ‘shrinking society’ and think about the future of Japanese society. This festival will be hosted by the event coordinator Tanikawa Takeshi (visiting professor at Waseda University) who is one of the exhibition planners.
(Event only in Japanese)
