POSTCARDS: AKA CHAN

Director:

Jonny & Jono

Made as part of the JSF Postcards initiative.

 

While in Japan on a commercial shoot, Madderson and Stevens happened across a meeting of champion karate kids. The duo captured these pint-sized Tokyo fighters, many of which are black belts by the age of seven – revealing a storied martial-arts tradition that is very much alive and well. 

Aka-Chan was premiered by Nowness.
