Director Statement

Thank you for visiting our page.

My name is Masashi Kawamata, and I am the writer, director of "Memories of The Sparks".

I sincerely hope that the audience will feel the emotion of the two young women, who are subtly yet largely impacted by the backdrop of the modern Japan.

LGBTQIA+ rights are yet to be discussed in the developed country and largely overlooked. There are people after people who struggle to be truthful to themselves.

I hope the sentiments of the two women will be well communicated to you.

Please have a look at our film.
