Cinematography: Dmitrij Ritter


In just nineteen minutes, Dmitry Ritter’s Japan shows us two (not too) distinct worlds: the inner world of the protagonist, depicted through captions running on the screen, and Japan, with scenes of everyday life, people sleeping in the streets, moments of gathering, walls with elaborate graffiti on them, grocery shops and empty streets at night. Because, in fact, most of the filming took place at night, when the city is asleep, when one feels even more alone and no one is ready to help. As part of the programme Diagonale 2020 – The unfinished.
