North American Premiere

Introduction and Q&A with director Yu Irie

Lieutenant Colonel Yuki (Yusuke Iseya) established the mysterious D Agency, an independent unit of the Japanese army at the eve of WWII. Rejecting army academy graduates, he instead recruits street-smart hustlers or degenerates, training them to be masters of manipulation, international operatives counteracting the war-mongering colonialist efforts of imperial army leadership. One such antihero agent under the name Jiro Kato (Kazuya Kamenashi) goes on a harrowing mission to uncover secret documents, battling forces from within and without his own ranks. Chameleon director Yu Irie, known for indie music comedies, turns the spy genre up to eleven in this breathtaking thriller.

Japan. 2015. 108 min. HDCAM, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yu Irie. With Kazuya Kamenashi, Kyoko Fukada, Yusuke Iseya, Kiyohiko Shibukawa, Keisuke Koide.

Based on the bestselling novel by Koji Yanagi, winner of the Yoshikawa Eiji Prize for New Writers and the Mystery Writers of Japan Award
