Kvinnlig sumobrottning kombineras med politisk aktivism i en sprakande historia som bygger på verkliga händelser.

Efter den stora jordbävningen i Tokyo 1923, där 140 000 människor miste livet, råder politiskt kaos i Japan. Nationalistiska idéer växer sig allt starkare. Vi följer ett turnerande sällskap kvinnliga sumobrottare som flyr personligt förtryck och odlar anarkistiska idéer. Den principfasta Kiku, vars namn betyder krysantemum på japanska, går med i gruppen och blir förälskad i en av anarkisterna i Giljontinrörelsen. Regissören Zeze Takahisa, med ett förflutet i den mjukporriga pinku-traditionen, berättar en omväxlande historia som både är rolig och på fullaste allvar.

Regissör: Takahisa Zeze

Japan, and through the early 1990s established himself as one of the nation’s top four ‘potentates of porn’.

His Six-four, a two-part crime thriller, is due for release in 2016. Since then he has been active in both television documentaries and feature films, with Heaven’s Story winning the critics’ Netpac Award at the 2011 Berlin IFF.

When I was a teensman, I thought that independent movies and young directors who just recently appeared changed the world, and I was willing to go to the movies. I myself was "guillotine company." A few decades ago, I wanted to make a movie with a subject titled "Independence independence" "Freedom" again before reality that I had not done. I thought so unless I made it now. When I was a young aim to a movie that wanted to change something, I thought for the first time that I wanted to make such a movie. Afterwards, to the wind hole of the world. If so, it is a long-awaited proposal.
