 Women in Struggle—paving the way for the future

3 x 25 min.



Colors of Asia 2016 were created based on the theme of ‘Women – Paving the way for Asia.’ Within the particular context of each country, the programs depict women striving to make small, daily advances while struggling with convention, conservative climates and societies where males still dominate.
Colors of Asia 2015 were broadcast on NHK BS1 over four consecutive nights from August 31 to September 3, 2015 and Colors of Asia 2016 were broadcast on NHK BS1 over three consecutive nightsfrom October 21 to November 2, 2016.

Colors of Asia 2016は2015年のTokyo Docsに参加したアジアの製作者に「アジアの今を生きる女性たち」をテーマに企画の提案を呼び掛け、集まった企画の中から3本を選び、それぞれパートナーとなる日本の製作会社を決めて製作がスタートしました。
因習や保守的な風土、色濃く残る男性中心社会と格闘しながら、女性ならではの視点や手法を用いて、日々小さな前進を求めて生きる女性たちを、各国独自の背景を映しながら描いています。
