Shôgai – our first feature film.
«When Masahiro returns to his hometown of Tokyo with his wife, he is suddenly plagued by inexplicable feelings of guilt and nightmares from a time long past. Then a mysterious man advises him to perform an eerie ritual in the infamous Aokigahara forest. For Masahiro, a dramatic journey into the past begins, to his innermost spiritual abysses.»
Following in the footsteps of their multi-award-winning short film “Hunger” (www.hungerfilm.ch) and Tokyo Rain (www.tokyorain.ch), Robert Schneider and Michel Wild produce a Japanese drama from their personal European point of view. ‘Shōgai’ is also shot exclusively in Switzerland. The real film sequences are supplemented with classic anime scenes.
