Tatsuya MORI 森達也

i -Documentary Of The Journalist-

Nippon Docs   ¾ 

In Japan, there is an informal agreement between mainstream media and the government that is hardly ever questioned: Journalists are not too persistent in their criticism, in turn representatives of the government grant direct access to select information through press conferences. Isoko MOCHIZUKI, reporter for the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper, has established herself as a spoilsport in this system. Her work has already been the basis for the multi-award-winning 2019 feature film THE JOURNALIST (available in this year’s NIPPON CINEMA section). For its equally gripping documentary counterpart, Tatsuya MORI has accompanied MOCHIZUKI with his camera for several months.
