Event Description

Yuko is a stubborn journalist working on a documentary report about a sexual assault case at a local high school where a teen committed suicide following a rumour that she was having an affair with a teacher. With her hardheadedness, Yuko pushes against the network’s desire for a routine story and begins to document the fallout of the scandal, interviewing connected family members whose lives have fallen into shambles because of messy accusations from the media.

At nights, Yuko helps her father run a cram school, where the lives of high school students become an all too close reminder of the story she’s working on. When a shocking revelation turns everything upside down, her work and life quickly become complicated. Black and white soon muddy into grey as Writer and Director Yujiro Harumoto slowly adds layers of complexity to an exceedingly tense situation. Not only does he create a drama that meticulously captures the social consequences of today’s media landscape, but he also examines the border between fact and fiction that filmmakers constantly hop back and forth over - all in the service of a good story.

A Balance is a thriller delivered in a minor key about a woman relentlessly dedicated to recording the truth - pointing the lens at anyone who even attempts to twist the facts - right up until the time comes for her to turn the camera on herself.
