"Slice of Life" is a series of 10-minute documentaries capturing intimate stories that reveal universal truths.
There are nearly 200 actors on the books at Toei Studios Kyoto, a 90-year-old movie studio. Many of them work as extras, doing the thankless job of making stars look good. But a new project has given them the chance to play leading roles for the first time. A young director and some production staff will also enjoy a break from their usual supporting positions. We send our camera behind the scenes to capture their big moment in the spotlight.
