Overview

Synopsis

Peep "TV" Show
A reclusive social misfit broadcasting images of strangers over the internet comes into contact with a gothic Lolita who is eager to join his voyeuristic enterprise in director Yutaka Tsuchiya's digital exploration of the Japanese video surveillance subculture. His video camera obsessively trained on the unsuspecting masses that crowd the Tokyo streets, Haegawa secretly runs a website that brings the images of the masses to the masses. Jaded goth girl Moe knows well of Haegawa's website, and when the reluctant shutterbug agrees to let her take a closer look at his clandestine operation, the result is a chilling decent into a world where the lens sees all, and reality is subjective. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Carnival in the Night
Japanese independent filmmaker Masashi Yamamoto wrote and directed this purposefully gritty look at life amidst Tokyo's underground music and art scene. Kumi (Kumiko Ota) sings with a new wave band that is struggling to find an audience for their harsh and uncompromising music. Kumi is divorced, and has joint custody of her young son with her former husband. One day, Kumi calls her ex, has him pick up their son, and sets off on a strange and unsettling journey through the city's subterranean culture, encountering drug-addled would-be lovers, armed radicals, deranged public works employees and other fascinating but dangerous characters. Yami No Carnival (aka Carnival In The Night) was Yamamoto's first film to win international acclaim, earning enthusiastic response at the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival; fellow independent filmmaker Atsuhiko Suwa served as an assistant during the making of the picture. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
