March : Himizu
(Director: Shion Sono, 2012, 130min. Rating:R16 Cast: Shota Sometani, Fumi Nikaido)

Nobody can touch his future.

The film from Director Sion Sono (Suicide Club) tells a powerful story of two teenagers' struggle to live against the backdrop of the Japan tsunami and earthquake. Yuichi and Keiko are two teenagers struggling to live in the aftermath of the tsunami. Facing the oppressive abandonment by each of their parents, Yuichi is finally pushed too far and embarks on a violent campaign of revenge against society's evil doers and it's up to Keiko to try to bring him back to the path of a decent man.

Both of the lead actors Shōta Sometani and Fumi Nikaido received the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best New Young Actor and Actress at the 2011 Venice Film Festival.

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland, The Japan Foundation, The University of Auckland, Massey University, The University of Waikato.
