Director Miwa Nishikawa’s Under the Open Sky, produced in 2021, is a drama featuring the life of a member of the Yakuza, a Mafia-like criminal organisation in Japan, who decides to leave his group for a new life.

The organiser hopes the film festival will introduce a taste of the Japanese film industry as well as the country’s history, culture and lifestyle to Vietnamese audiences.—VNS
