BBC 2, THIS WORLD (2018) 

ROLE: Assistant Producer & camera 

This film follows the moving story of 29-year-old Japanese journalist, Shiori Ito, who alleges she was raped by a well-known TV journalist and biographer of Japan’s prime minister, Noriyuki Yamaguchi, after the two met for a work dinner in 2015. Mr Yamaguchi strenuously denies the claims. 

Directed by Erica Jenkin

Produced by True Vision

 

The film was originated by me and main contributor Shiori Ito. In 2017,  I published an article in Sweden's most prominent news paper Dagens Nyheter, which revealed Shiori's story and the social issues of gender and traditions in Japan.
