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 Monster 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.
