Our latest and last issue as a PDF. This marks a new beginning for us, and marks the actual 2-month countdown for the opening of yam-mag.com.

Atami no Sousakan is an 8-episode mystery comedy written and directed by film director Satoshi Miki and starring Joe Odagiri and Chiaki Kuriyama as two special branch detectives arriving to the city of South Atami to solve the mysterious disappearance of a bus with four schoolgirls from a private school.
This year was the festival’s 20th anniversary, so it was supposed to be a good one. Looking at the movie list, I must say that they didn’t disappoint. There was a great mix of movies from all over the world, although Africa was underrepresented and Asia got a bigger representation.
