Purpose of the residency

Our purpose is to do research, then make a 30-minute documentary on this topic. As documentarists, we greatly desire to discover various aspects of mental life and hidden corners of human's psychology all over the world.
We fall in love with Japan at first sight. Japan has brought us inspiration to work and to talk and communicate.
Our research topic has both similar and different aspects between Japanese and Vietnamese cultures. Those contrasts have aroused curiosity in us, and pushed us to conduct this documentary project in Japan. Not only doing research, we can also live with and listen to people of a culture that we dearly love. That is the greatest thing.
