Celebrated
Japanese
filmmaker
Hirokazu
Kore-eda
is
working
on
a
film
and
a
web
series
for
Netflix
as
the
streamer
expands
its
live-action
lineup
from
the
country.
Kore-eda,
known
for
his
humanist
stories,
became
the
first
Japanese
director
in
21
years
to
win
the
Palme
d’Or
at
the
Cannes
Film
Festival
for
his
2018
film

Shoplifters
.
The
critically-acclaimed
film
looks
at
a
ragtag
bunch
of
shoplifters
who
welcome
a
lonely
young
girl
in
their
unusual
family.
His
other
films
include

Nobody
Knows
,

Still
Walking
,

After
the
Storm

and

Like
Father,
Like
Son
.

“Netflix
and
I
are
teaming
up
to
create
a
drama
series
and
a
big-budget
movie
that
is
different
from
my
previous
works.
You
still
need
to
wait
for
a
bit
before
they’re
finished
and
delivered
to
you.
I
incorporate
different
elements
from
those
in
theatre
movies
and
try
to
create
exciting
works.
Please
look
forward
to
them,” the
director
said
in
a
video
message,
shared
and
translated
by
the
streamer.

Japanese Director Hirokazu Kore-eda

Kore-eda
said
the
film
he
is
making
for
Netflix
will
be
different
in
scale
from
his
previous
movies
while
the
drama
series
could
only
be
realised
through
his
collaboration
with
the
streamer.
T

he
noted
Japanese
director,
59,
said
he
will
be
working
with
several
young
directors
on
the
drama
as
he
is
also
involved
as
a
showrunner.
Though
he
will
direct
several
episodes
by
himself,
Kore-eda
said,
“This
time
I
will
try
to
incorporate
young
directors
and
work
with
them.
This
is
also
a
big
appeal
for
me
to
work
on
this
project.”

The
filmmaker,
who
fell
in
love
with
films
while
watching
them
with
his
mother,
a
huge
movie
buff,
and
made
his
showbiz
start
in
television,
made
a
case
for
“breaking
old
boundaries
and
limitations”
to
give
birth
to
new
creators
and
new
works
in
his
video.

“Realistically,
radical
films
normally
have
little
chance
of
being
screened
in
theatres.
In
the
end,
they
would
not
be
seen
by
the
audience.
It’s
not
just
in
Japan
but
in
every
country.
Through
streaming,
these
films
can
be
actually
born
into
the
world.
I
think
it’s
important,”
he
said
giving
the
example
of
American
films
and
documentaries
on
streaming
that
have
won
Oscars.
“It’s
definitely
a
stage
for
that.
I
think
it’s
a
very
positive
situation,”
he
said.

Netflix
is
expanding
its
lineup
in
Japan
where
it
will
work
with
a
diverse
roster
of
creators.
“We
hope
to
play
a
role
in
the
history
of
great
local
talent
finding
their
voices
and
delivering
them
to
audiences
everywhere,
from
Japan
to
the
world,”
the
streamer
said.
