Why is it "somewhere" that I'm standing at ?
Why is it "somewhere" that I'm standing at?
It's because I've started my new career as a film director "somewhere".
I've been working within Japanese film society for over 30 years, but I've finally come to realize that I don't belong here.
From here on out, I will make films in real film societies other than Japan, and I will go by Gen Takahashi. I will never use my Japanese name "高橋玄（Takahashi Gen)" as a director anymore.
So what, you say ?
You're right. All this is, is just my declaration of independence as a filmmaker. Or maybe I'm just talking to myself.
