Saudade (Saudaji)

The third feature film by rising young director Katsuya Tomita offers a bold look at racial tensions and economic woes in a multi-ethnic Japan rarely seen in films. Set in a small city in Yamanashi prefecture, Saudade (a Portuguese word meaning nostalgic longing) focusses on a group of disparate people struggling against marginalisation. Among them are a Japanese hip-hop singer and part-time construction worker, his Thai girlfriend, and a Japanese-Brazilian hip-hop group.
