posted on by Karen Ressler
Director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, The Tatami Galaxy, Lu over the wall, DEVILMAN crybaby) teased one of his upcoming new projects in an interview with Tokyo Weekender posted last week. According to the magazine, one of the projects is an "original love story 'with some tweaks' about a surfer girl and a fireman."
Yuasa said that he is always working on several projects at once. "The basic theme that I focus on is that the world is an interesting place," he told the magazine, "and I want people to be aware that while we are living in the same place, we are experiencing life in a different way."
Yuasa plans to announce a new work on October 28. This year's Tokyo International Film Festival, which will run from October 25 to November 3, will host "The World of Masaaki Yuasa" retrospective on the director's work.
