Director Biography - Kenji Ogusu

I was the world's first professional MMA fighter in the flyweight division. I was ranked #2 in the World MMA Ranking.

But I am also a creator. I have written 26 books and created many works.

And I had many opportunities to meet so many interesting people in my life. In the process, I interviewed them and started making videos of the interviews myself.

While doing so, I realized that the way to express their minds, emotions, and hearts is through film.

And I began a new career as a filmmaker.

Director Statement

What I want to express in the movie is despair, courage, and hope. The reason why I think so is that hope is created by despair. I believe that hope and despair are in direct proportion. And there is courage between them.

The audience wants to see courage in movies. The reason why I think so maybe that I was an MMA fighter.  

I made this film because I wanted to depict courage, despair, and hope in the film..
