Event Details

The Tokyo International Film Festival underwent a significant gear change as it relocated its main venues to the Hibiya, Ginza, and Yurakucho area; invited new programmers; and reorganized its sections.


Over its ten-day period, the Tokyo International Film Festival will showcase the colorful wealth of works from the forefront of cinema. Audience members will be able to enjoy films that can be seen only in Tokyo today, from major blockbusters to arthouse films. Taking all of the above into account, TIFF further pledges to incorporate its 2022 motto, “Leaping Forward” in its delivery so that it can present an increasingly exciting, deep-reaching, and delightful festival to its audiences. Look forward to what TIFF has in store as it takes a giant leap forward to flourish in the post-COVID era.

<Introduction>


Noa's husband prevents a terrorist knife attack by killing the stabber. Soon, Noa starts noticing cracks in the official story of the attack, a discovery that thrusts her into a severe moral crisis. As she loses her grip of what is real and what is fake, lying seems to be the only way to the truth.
