About Cinetopia:DOC presents Inland Sea

This September Cinetopia:DOC is proud to present the Edinburgh premiere of Kazuhiro Soda’s INLAND SEA (Minatomashi, 2018), screened as part of Edinburgh Scalarama! Deemed as one of the masters of contemporary documentary filmmaking, Soda’s method and style follow a strict set of self-established commandments, resulting in a unified style of documentaries that provide an unprecedented access to the subjects and take the viewers on an emotional exploration to the Japanese psyche, culture and landscape.

Soda’s style is strictly observational, keeping the camera rolling and letting the subjects slowly open up to the audiences. The concurring characters in his documentaries are cats, but the focus of his films lays on the intimate and humane portraits of the characters he is following. Soda’s films form intimate bonds between the subjects and the viewer, unearthing incredible stories and capturing highly emotional moments on camera.

Inland Sea (2018) looks at a dying fishing village in rural Japan, and follows its townsfolk through their daily routines, discovering not only the stories of the people but also displaying the slowly disappearing culture and community of the town.

Our informal documentary screening occurs in the Edinburgh Film Guild Cinema monthly. The Guild Cinema is located in the Filmhouse building but is not part of the Filmhouse cinema. Someone from Cinetopia will be in the cafe to quietly take you back to the cinema space! Afterwards, we generally sit down and talk about the film (if desired) in the filmhouse cafe. We look forward to seeing you at the next one!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cinetopia:DOC presents Inland Sea are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
