A Man Calling Himself Japan’s Prime Minister Making a Speech at an International Assembly

Directed by Aida Makoto
Japan, 2014
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Japanese artist Aida Makoto himself acts as the man who gives the speech, preaching for the world to adopt Sakoku, Japan’s reclusive foreign policy from the Edo period. The speech, delivered in a heavy Japanese accent and faltering English, throws a humorous twist to the grave message it conveys.
