A Normal Life, Please is directed by Tokachi Tsuchiya, member of the filmmaking collective “Video Act” committed to documenting social injustice in Japan. Following the life of truck-driver Kaikura Nobukazu and his struggles with his employers, this documentary provides an eye-popping account of the repercussions of the Japanese government’s recent steps to relax labor regulations under the pretext of increased competition in the global market. Will justice prevail as Kaikura and his fellow union members take on the company and the yakuza that support them? A Normal Life, Please won best documentary honors at the Raindance Festival. In Japanese language with English subtitles. (HD presentation)
