& Discussion with Bernhard Scheid (IKGA, ÖAW)

“This is a documentary about the Ainu people of Japan. On a trip which took us from Japan to Europe, we found a people erased from history books. The repeated sentence ‘I am Ainu’ expresses a willingness to overcome their marginal circumstances. But the awakening of the Ainu people faces the mercantilist logic of a global world. Unavoidably, doubt comes to mind: What does being Ainu mean today?”
