Whitby Film Society presents Of Love and Law

  • 2019-09-26 07:45:00

Of Love and Law

Documentary Japan 2019 94 mins Cert: 15

Director: Hikaru Toda

 “ As the credits roll on this film viewers are likely to feel an uncontrollable urge to reach into the screen and hug the protagonists  and their extended family “

Fumi and Kazu are partners in love and law. They run the first law firm in Japan set up by an openly gay couple. As lawyers they are driven by their own experience of being outsiders. They attract a range of clients who reveal the hidden diversity of a country that prides itself on collective obedience.

Their “misfit” clients include a teacher who was dismissed for not singing the national anthem and a vagina artist sued for obscenity for trying to escape the country’s patriarchal systems in a vagina shaped canoe.

Complete with cats and musical interludes, Of Love and Law is a story of family, justice and love.
