The world continues to battle against the novel coronavirus, and cross-border travels remain restricted for many. In these unprecedented times, the Japan Foundation believes it is important to share the beauty of cultural and humanistic bonds with the global community through our second film project, “Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2018: Journey”, created under the theme of travel beyond time and space, by three acclaimed directors from Asia. The film is now available for free streaming until November 30, 2020 (JST).
Co-produced by The Japan Foundation Asia Center and Tokyo International Film Festival, the Asian Three-Fold Mirror project brings together three directors from Asia to co-create omnibus films with a common theme. The second installment of the series, “Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2018: Journey”, was directed by three notable Asian filmmakers under the theme of travel beyond time and space. Crew and cast joined forces across national borders to depict the lives of characters who travel through China, Myanmar and Japan. One of Indonesia’s most popular actors, Nicholas Saputra, appears in all three episodes.
