Tokyo Rising

Pharrell stars in this urban documentary film which is part of Palladium’s exploration series. He takes a trip to Tokyo to see how people deal with the recent earthquake & nuclear disaster. In particular he looks into the thriving music, art and fashion scene of one the most influential cities in the world. It's undeniable how much pain the 3-11 disaster brought upon Japan but this film also shows the new-won spirit of the japanese that will help them overcome the event and learn from it. The pictures are breathtaking and if you've ever been to Tokyo this will give you itchy feet to return there. A friend once said that living in Tokyo is like living in Bladerunner, but it's cleaner and the people are nice.

You can find the trailer below and see the five part full length documentary on the Palladium website.
