The Making Of A Japanese

Ema Ryan Yamazaki / Japan, United States, Finland, France / 2023 / 99 min

“The Making Of A Japanese” takes you into the microcosm of a public primary school in Tokyo. Over the course of a year, we accompany pupils in first and sixth grade and immerse ourselves in a school system that is very different from ours. Discipline, a sense of community and good manners are highly valued here alongside the traditional curriculum. An intriguing look at the interplay between individualism and respect in everyday life. In between math problems and disaster drills in the preparation of earthquakes, larger socio-political issues are emerging in the daily school routine.
