TOKYO FILMeX has gained a reputation for showcasing some of the best in Asian cinema, and this time on J-FLICKS, we focus on the 20th edition of this international film festival. Receiving a Special Mention at the event was "book-paper-scissors," a documentary offering a window into the world of book design. Then from the SKIP CITY INTERNATIONAL D-Cinema FESTIVAL, we look at the winner of the Best Picture in the Japanese Film Competition, "Sacrifice." And for our Feature Selection, we spotlight "Fukushima 50," the story of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant workers who risked their lives during the 2011 crisis caused by the earthquake and tsunami.
