Naomi Kawase Appointed to Direct The Official Film of The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
Naomi Kawae Comment,
The Olympic Games have a long and glorious history, and with the international sports event returning to Tokyo after 56 years, I am thinking about the role bestowed on me. I now feel that the "god of film" that came to me one day has given me the chance to record this wonderful celebration of sport that connects people, and to leave a legacy for generations to come. I hope to capture "time" and take full advantage of the appeal of documentary films and their ability to freeze those moments into "eternity", allowing the significance of the Tokyo 2020 Games to be communicated worldwide.
