Director, Junji Iwai x NON x Takumi Saitoh

The film completed remotely due to COVID-19, “Yooka de Shinda Kaiju no 12 nichi no Monogatari” (12 Day Story of the Kaiju that Died in 8 Days) will be release on July 31st, 2020.

In this work, 5 directors including famous Japanese director, Shinji Higuchi, with the intent of “defeating the virus with Kaiju figures,” fight the invisible giant monster, COVID-19, with the filming shot from home.  Fighting with their kaiju figures at home, via SNS friends began relays of passing the baton with the hashtag #KAIJUDEFEATCOVID. Because of the positive reaction,  to save the mini theatre, a new movie version was made. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Mini-Theatre AID.

Please look forward to the release at the end of this month.
