Following World Cup news of Japan’s 1-nil loss to Costa Rica and other news suggesting World Cup frenzy is putting a strain on Qatar's camel industry, the Lithuanian filmmaker Jonas Mekas took place over the weekend with a day of film screenings at the University of Tokyo. However, attention turns to the late Japanese film director Yoichi Sai, best known for his depiction of Koreans living in Japan with his debut “Mosquito on the 10th Floor” (1983) a controversial landmark that describes the fall of a character upholding the law while consumed by vice and the changing face of contemporary Japan. For Sai and Mekas, the exploration of social outcasts were filmed in infinitely different ways, experiences that are thankfully being revisited and remembered.
