This Planet Is Not My Planet

Nippon Docs   ¾ 

Mitsu TANAKA is a pioneer of the Japanese women’s liberation movement. She started her activism in the early 1970s, motivated by the feeling she already had as a child: This world with its rules and power structures is not the world she wants to live in! Her main concern today is to transfer feminism as a comprehensive moral attitude into one’s occupational, family, and everyday life. Miwa YOSHIMINE has accompanied the protagonist of her documentary for several years, creating an in-depth portrayal of the person behind the political struggles: Mitsu TANAKA doesn’t hide her rough edges.
