Natsuka Kusano (Japan)

Born in 1985 in Kanazawa Prefecture, Japan. After graduating from Tokai University, where she majored in literature and creative writing, she enrolled in the 12th class of the Film School of Tokyo's Fiction Course. She directed Antonym as her first feature film. Her second feature film Domains was screened at International Film Festival Rotterdam, Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, and so on. Both films focus on the relation between actors and characters they play, and the changes in their voices when the characters are “acquired.” She is trying various methods, but she sticks on fiction films and continues to make films.
