NHK WORLD presents TOKYO’S HOMELESS: In The Shadows Of The Olympics

Thursday, June 21 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30; FREE EVENT!

Join us for a night of documentary films from our friends at NHK World Japan and UCLA’s Urban Humanities Initiative! This event is free and family friendly! 

The homeless in Japan are almost invisible. It’s not that homelessness doesn’t exist, but that they aren’t ‟in your face”, the way one would expect in other societies. The homeless are also dwindling in number, as they age along with the general population and are accepted by Social Welfare programs. For various reasons, some fall through the ‟safety net”. With the advent of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, these urban poor are under pressure to disappear. What does the future hold for them?

Also screening is Vanishing Community (21 mins), 2017

A reflection on the spatial dimensions of homelessness, revealing tensions between notions of homeless space, public space, and the city as they play out in Tokyo as preparations for Tokyo 2020 Olympics begin. Film created by Nerve Macaspac as part of UCLA’s Urban Humanities Initative.
