Director: Hikaru Toda
Duration: 94 minutes

Fumi and Kazu live openly as a gay couple in Osaka but they are work partners too, founders of the first official LGBT law firm in Japan. In an outwardly modern country that masks a deep-rooted conservatism – condemned by Amnesty International for infringing global human rights standards – the pair campaign quietly and persistently for civil liberties. Their clients range from a teacher fired for refusing to sing the national anthem to a feminist sculptor prosecuted for obscenity. Toda’s absorbing documentary shows them at work and at leisure, peeling back the layers to disclose the truly homogenous nature of Japanese society.

The screening on Thursday will be followed by a Skype Q&A with director Hikaru Toda
