Of Love & Law

Director of Photography for feature-length observational documentary.

Fumi and Kazu are partners in love and law; they run the first law firm in Japan set up by an openly gay couple. As lawyers driven by their own experience of being ​outsiders​, they attract a range of clients who reveal the hidden diversity of a country that prides itself for collective obedience, politeness and conformity. Their ‘misfit’ clients include a teacher who was dismissed for not singing the national anthem, and Rokudenashiko – the vagina artist, sued by the police for obscenity, for trying to escape the country’s patriarchal systems in a vagina-shaped canoe.
