A filmed record of the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival ’89, held from October 10 to 15 of 1989. Filming started to document the preparations for the festival, and the film was then assembled mainly from interviews with festival participants who came to Yamagata from around the world as well as fragments of relevant film and media footage. 1989 was the year of the Tiananmen Square Incident and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and this film not only documents the festival itself, but also richly reflects the spirit of the times. Edited by Ogawa Shinsuke and colleagues.
