This is Ryo Takeuchi's most recent documentary, its a long video. But quite a good watch. Its about how China was able to score the ultimate victory of still being able to prosper after beating Covid-19. All this while the rest of the world is still in lockdown.Japanese filmmaker Ryo Takeuchi, who made an hour-long documentary earlier this year capturing China's battle against the COVID-19 pandemic and the process of healing in Wuhan, once the epicenter of the China’s coronavirus outbreak, has stressed that it was his own intention to cover COVID-19 stories in Wuhan rather than being asked or paid to, as some people outside China look askance at the documentary which has won widespread praises in and out of China.
I am looking forward for his next project "poverty alleviation"
Ryo Takeuchi, a Japanese director who knows China well and made a series Chinese-related documentaries, attended the forum of the 10th Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) and shared in the interview his next documentary project, which is still closely related to China.
On the afternoon of August 28, the "International Academic Forum on Cinematic Arts: A New Journey of Chinese Films in the New Era" of the 10th BJIFF took place at the Beijing Yanqi Lake International Convention and Exhibition Center.
As one of the guests, Takeuchi shared his experience in creating documentaries. He is accustomed to choosing his methods of expression based on the content being created. The starting point of documentaries, science fiction films, and action films is real life, so he doesn't believe there should be restrictions on the theme.
Next project is about China's poverty alleviation
Hi ansy1968,Hi horse,

He is one of my idol, his philosophy is one of Confucius. He is proud of his Japanese identity and openly express it to his interviewee and you can see how the Chinese responded no recrimination and discrimination. He is accepted and given respect, that's why he want repay that kindness back with his documentary and try to bridge the misunderstanding with true facts.
Hi Hendrik_2000,Yes it is amazing when he and his family has no prior connection to China at all. Until he made Yangzhe river documentary and get to know, talk to the people living along the river. I guess he fell in love with China but also appalled at lack of knowledge on both countries about each other and decide to do something to bring awareness and understanding. He went back and met his wife Zhou Ping at work in NHK, Later he give up his lucrative job and decide to move to his wife home town Nanjing. His wife was against it as they give up home and comfortable life in Japan But he kept asking finally she relented and sell their home and founded video company with his own money.
It was hard struggle at first but later they found sponsor in Panasonic and some other Japanese companies. Beside documentary he does ad for Japan related companies He has long series about how people lives in each other country. Some of them are moving like the story of old japanese man who opened curry shop in Wuhan. He has no money and has to buy meat on credit from Chinese shop owner and she give him the meat. His restaurant is a success with student crowd. During pandemic his shop assistant ask him to temporary resettled in her village since he has no family left. It show the kindness and caring of the average people in China. There are many stories of old people die alone in Japan. Yes he is Confucians he travel each month to visit his parents
Oh look it didn't take them long. The Western Media has already branded all these YouTubers as CCP agents.
