Tokyo Pengyou

2018 | 47’ | Japan / China
Jamie Coates

The efforts of a young Chinese musician to settle in Japan, reveal emergent forms of sociality and conviviality through playful scenarios and the interplay of digital and analogue worlds. Tokyo Pengyou show how desire, disappointment and creativity shape young Chinese people's social bonds when living abroad, revealing the complicated nature of friendship in migration contexts. Based on long-term fieldwork in Ikebukuro, Tokyo's unofficial Chinatown, the film also serves as a reflection on the role of friendship in anthropological research.
