EXCLUSIVE: In a matter of hours, the latest feature from MTV Documentary Films will premiere on Paramount+: A Song Film By Kishi Bashi: OMOIYARI.
The documentary directed by Justin Taylor Smith and Kaoru Ishibashi – the composer and musician who goes professionally by the name Kishi Bashi – follows Kishi Bashi “as he embarks on a personal quest creating music in locations relevant to the Japanese American Incarceration during WWII,” according to a description of the film. “It is on this journey in which Kishi Bashi comes to terms with his own Japanese American identity and uncovers a myriad of social issues that have gripping modern relevance.
Omoiyari is a genre breaking, artistic exploration that fuses history, music, and the complexities of the human condition.” The film, which premiered earlier this year at SXSW, debuts on the Paramount+ streaming platform in the U.S.
and Canada on Tuesday. The following day it premieres in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.Read more on deadline.com
