Directed by Kim Longinotto
Produced in 2000
Main Language - Japanese with English subtitles
A double-bill of two ‘Japanese’ films from one of Britain’s greatest contemporary documentary filmmakers, Kim Longinotto. Both of these multi-award-winning documentaries explore perceptions - and complexities - of female sexuality in modern Japan.
Shinjuku Boys introduces three 'onnabes' (Japanese women who live as men) who work as hosts at the New Marilyn Club in Tokyo. Following them at home and at work, all three speak frankly about their lives, their families, women and sexuality.
Gaea Girls follows the gruelling training regime of a group of would-be Japanese women wrestlers. Defying perception and convention, these women prove themselves as tough - and as aggressive - as their male counterparts. Featuring legendary female pro-wrestler superstar Chigusa Nagayo, this is a fascinating insider’s account of a closely guarded universe in a country where women are usually regarded as docile and subservient.
