Five Years of Kurdish Youths in Tokyo: An Interview with Director Hyuga Fumiari
A documentary released in 2021 is based on five years of interviews with young Turkish Kurds who have grown up in Japan. Their repeated applications to obtain refugee status have failed, making it hard for their dreams of higher education and employment to come true. Director Hyuga Fumiari shares his thoughts on producing "Tokyo Kurds" and explains how it has affected his view of Japan today. (This program was broadcast on October 13, 2021.)
