Direction & Screenplay

The 6 used to hang out everyday at the park in their childhood. Now they live their own ways as an office worker at the prefectural government, a collage student, a part-time employee, a hacker, a bartender and an unemployed. They all have a feeling that everyday is just passing and the youth is going away. But what is youth anyway? The youth of the 6 childhood friends. Their dream, rage, sorrow and light. It was a flush of youth in Tokushima, of an intense, sad and invigorating day of youth. It is a film about the 6 childhood friends seeking for an answer to the society and the happiness who charged into the line of riot police. The first featured film directed by Seiichi Hishikawa who had many previous short film works. Independently produced and distributed around the nation. It is an experimental film project outside existing film production and distribution system.

 

毎日公園で一緒だった6人。今はそれぞれ県庁職員、大学生、フリーター、ハッカー、スナック店員、プータローになってそれぞれ生きている。ただそれだけの毎日。
青春が終わろうとしているのは自分たちが一番よくわかっている。
青春って。なんだよ。
