BBC2 THIS WORLD Documentary, 60min  

Role: Assistant Producer & Additional camera 

 

Directed by Erica Jenkin, produced by True Vision

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. 

 

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.
