Why I Make Documentaries
Soda Kazuhiro has based his documentary filmmaking career on a radically independent method. This publication is a reflexive diary on his own work in pursuit of answers to many crucial questions which have arisen along his extensive research path. It is the first curated English version of Kazuhiro’s most enlightening and complete writings, enriched with a new iconographic apparatus derived from his films and an updated introduction by the author himself. Discover why seeking answers to such basic things as “What is a documentary?” and “Why do I make documentaries?” turns out to be essential practice for one of the most prominent Japanese filmmakers today.
