Sheff Doc/Fest Youth Jury: Top Ten Unmissable Docs

PEACE is one of them!

"War has long been a staple of the documentary world. However, in contrast, it could be argued that peace has been its long-suffering sibling; its subject matter perhaps considered too bland and fluffy in comparison. But as Kazuhiro Soda’s multi award-winning film shows, it doesn’t have to be that way. Peace is a charming, quirky story focussing on Toshio Kashiwagi, an elderly taxi service manager for the disabled, and his caring for the stray cats that roam around the Okayama City streets. Also featuring his charity worker wife, Hiroko and a man in her care, the movie sheds light on the treatment of the disabled and aging populations of Japan and considers the topic of co-existence - not just between peoples - but also between these cute cats – who somewhat surprisingly have their own tale of peace and co-existence unravel before the cameras."
