Tohoku Project's film "Nowhere To Go But Everywhere" selected for San Sebastian Film Festival


The film "Nowhere To Go But Everywhere", which was born out of the Israeli Embassy's "Israel-Japan-Tohoku Initiative 2021" short film project and screened at the Rotterdam and Melbourne Film Festivals, has been selected for the 70th San Sebastian Film Festival's "Zabaltegi-Tabakalera" section.


This section screens films selected from international film festivals such as Berlin, Cannes, Jeonju, Locarno, Rotterdam, Sundance, and Venice, and is considered the most open competition with no style or time restrictions. The current lineup includes 13 feature films, 8 short films, and 1 medium-length film.


“Nowhere To Go But Everywhere " is a poetic documentary about a man who lost his wife in the tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the nature surrounding him in Tohoku. Directed by Eric Shirai (Chicago, 1984) of The Birth of Sake (2015) and Masako Tsumura (Tokyo, 1973) of Culinary Zinema.


The San Sebastián International Film Festival is held annually in September in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Spain.


Dates: Friday, September 16, 2022 - Saturday, September 24, 2022
