Kazuhiro Soda


Discussion with Japanese documentary filmmaker Kazuhiro Soda. Moderated by Péter Kerekes, Slovak filmmaker, producer, and teacher.

Japanese independent filmmaker Kazuhiro Soda practices an observational method of documentary filmmaking based on his own "Ten Commandments" which prohibits him from doing pre-shoot research or writing a synopsis before filming.

Soda’s cinema, presented at DAFilms as a comprehensive pathway into his entire body of work, begins with the small gestures of the everyday life of his subjects and, through his own diligence and empathy as an artist, charts the highs and lows of Japanese society in the years since he began producing documentaries.
