Dear All,

The programme for SheffieldDocfest has been announced https://sheffdocfest.com/festival/2021/explore/film-programme?page=0. Considering one of the curators is now Japanese, I can’t find as manyJapanese films as I hoped. There is:-

DoubleLayered Town / Making a Song to Replace Our Positions  https://sheffdocfest.com/film/double-layered-town-making-song-replace-our-positions by Haruka Komori + Natsumi Seo, whichsounds like it might be called a fictional film, 

and Hara Kazuo’s MinamataMandala https://sheffdocfest.com/film/minamata-mandala,running at 6 hours, 12 minutes on the final non-competition day, 13th June.As it’s a Sunday, the first train from London would get me there an hour late. Doesanyone have the experience to say whether watching a mere five and a quarterhours at the end would make a rational viewing experience ?
