Asia brings depth to Input 2008

Asian contributions this year come from China, India, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan and present an amazing range and depth of story. These include a courageous investigation into the Yakuza, Japan’s crime syndicate underworld; a unique exploration of democracy from the viewpoint of a class of third-grade Chinese children who employ the principles of the democratic vote (part of the award-winning Why Democracy series); patching up inter-generational gaps and a documentary made by a teacher over a period of three years that chronicles the growing-pains of three of his students.

From left to right: Please Vote For Me (China) and Hoshi Shinichi’s Short Shorts (Japan), which can be seen at Input 2008 on 5 May (in different parallel sessions).
