Salon Films Japan's sponsored film, “Angry Son”, achieved the New Director’s Award at the Osaka Asian International Film Festival.
Salon Films Japan's equipment-sponsored film, “Sekai ha bokurani kidukanai/Angry Son”, was awarded the New Director’s Award yesterday at the Osaka Asian International Film Festival.
Depicting both racism and gender identity is not an easy task. However, director Kasho Iizuka has skilfully portrayed the protagonist, who has a Filipino mother and a Japanese father, as he confronts his own sexuality and identity crisis. The performances by GOW and Kazuki Horike were also powerful. This proves that director Iizuka has excellent directing skills and the ability to create clashing narratives."
