Unravel is a Japanese feature film project first conceived in 2008. Combiningelementsofsuspenseanddrama,the film is a social commentary on modern day Japan which confronts issues related to exploitation, sacrifice and identity. After seven drafts were written, over 60 auditions were held, and numerous locations around Tokyo were scouted, production finally began in November of 2009. The film has now reached the post production stage and the light can finally be seen at the end of the tunnel.
It is often said that working with a low budget and lack of resources will bring out the utmost creativity in artists, but in the case of filmmaking it can bring them to the brink of insanity. Six arduous months of unpermitted, guerilla-style filmmaking in Tokyo will do just that.
