Perfect World

In 2121, where everything is captured as data, Citizens in the CITY are judged based on a score of one's efficiency, called a SPEC. An abortionist, Doctor K, faces a question between the law and morality when faced with a visit by his ex-lover Grace, who is pregnant. He decides to help her secretly by taking the risk of his memory to be deleted by the authority, until Grace safely escapes from the City.

Director Biography - Yuske Fukada

Yusuke Fukada was born in Kyoto, Japan, and grew up in the Uzumasa neighborhood, known as the “Hollywood of Japan.” Passionate about the multi-cultural/linguistic environment, Yusuke’s education is widespread thematically and geographically. It ranges from the study of Aesthetics at Kyoto University, where he developed his theory on the (im)possibility of random editing, based on the theory of Gilles Deleuze, to film production at The European Film College (Ebeltoft, Denmark), L’École supérieure d'études cinématographiques (Paris), and the University of Southern California (Los Angeles). In his theory and practice, his approach always starts by doubting pre-existing frameworks in order to explore invisible borderlines, the in- between spaces and times; including questions of identity between different social and human categories, such as nationalities, sexualities, and the past and present. He is currently in development of multiple projects based on historical and contemporary Japanese-American stories.

Director Statement

This project is an experiment which is meant to expand our imagination for our future, where I fear to be more intolerant than what it is (unless it's already that bad). The choice of the technology (motion captured data combined with color data) and aesthetics is not made for the sake of ' cool effects', but for the accurate visual expression of the story world. It was a huge burden and limitation for the production, but I believe this method enabled this film to earn its unique style necessary to tell this story visually. I hope this allows you to experience what we could be in the era that is governed by data.
