【Comment by Eri Watanabe】
The Eri Watanabe Office launched this April. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I was giving serious thought to what to do with myself in the future. I’m now 66 years old. I felt uncertainty over how many more years I can keep up my creative work. Thinking things through, I decided to amicably part ways from SIS company Inc., which had served as my office for 12 years. I intend to keep on pursuing my own world of creativity all the more. Thinking back, after being born in Yamagata, my first experience with film was being fascinated by seeing “The Red Shoes” when I was two years old.
I was also hit hard by seeing the Tennessee Williams play “The Glass Menagerie” while in high school, which made me long for the theatrical world. Seeing “Sundays and Cybele” at a repertory cinema theater in Yamagata, I dreamed of becoming the director of such films. I want to go back to these original intentions and, through the power of my own imagination, inspire people around the world to be happier.
As in the past, I plan to be active in the theatrical activities of Theatrical Company 3OO (Office 3OO) that I supervise, including television and commercials. The same holds for concerts.
I will continue to create works of my own that let vulnerable persons the world over create a diverse society in which they can be individuals. I ask for your continued support.
