The Akihabara quarter of Tokyo was hit by a rampage in 2008. NOISE explores possible reasons for such violence. Beneath the dazzling facade of the city, it examines the lives of teenagers struggling with disrupted families and unfulfilled dreams. In his first feature film, Yusaku MATSUMOTO makes expressive use of the city’s atmosphere and soundscapes.
