Shiho Fukada on Life in Japan
Shiho Fukada is a photo journalist, cinematographer, and filmmaker based between Tokyo, and New York. She has made 4 short documentaries (each about 10 min) about the life of Japanese people and their work (ethics) and how they make a living (or not) to survive in Japan.
The project is called “Disposable Workers“. We feel it’s a must-see, certainly for us Europeans, our life-standard differs so much from the Japanese it’s hard to imagine how some people cope with keeping up in Japanese society: If you think you have a busy or horrible job, and feel like your house is too small; watch the films and you’ll know there is no reason to complain. If your life is similar or you recognize yourself in these movies; Seek. Help.
