The Floating World.
“Ryuki was born into a rich family, but two years ago he lost everything. Like a lot of people with nowhere to go, he ends up in Tokyo’s infamous red-light quarter. He starts working in a cutthroat Host Club where women, mostly prostitutes, come to look for a new boyfriend. He quickly becomes the Number One Host, but he hopes that the secret that already made him lose everything doesn’t ruin this.”
The Floating World is a short documentary (15′) that I co-directed and produced alongside my best friend from school Fernando Souza. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a private screening link – there’s a trailer a bit further down. Also, we’ve set up an Instagram site with all news and info (click here)!
