Goodbye Cp

Alternative title
Sayonara Cp
Synopsis
Maverick documentary filmmaker Kazuo Hara once again criticizes the mores and customs of Japanese society in this unsentimental portrait of adults with cerebral palsy. Focusing on how the CP victims are generally ignored or disregarded in Japan, Hara challenges his society’s taboos about physical handicaps. Using a deliberately harsh style, with grainy black-and-white photography and out-of-sync sound, Hara brings a stark realism to his subject that is raw and fresh. DVD Extras: incuded cine notes booklet.
