Three directors. Three tales. One city. In INTERIOR DESIGN, adapted from a story by cartoonist Gabrielle Bell, Ayako Fujitani (star of Hideaki Anno’s RITUAL) is Hiroko, a recent college graduate short on ideas for her future and even shorter on funds for the present, that is, until a change of fortunes helps her find a useful purpose. Next, in MERDE, Denis Lavant is a media darling and sewer-creature with a penchant for raising a stench worthy of its name, “shit.” And in SHAKING TOKYO, an earthquake shakes up a “hikikomori” (Teruyuki Kagawa), who just may discover that life is what happens beyond his apartment door.  From the visionary minds behind ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (Michel Gondry), HOLY MOTORS (Leos Carax), and PARASITE (Bong Joon-ho) comes a wildly inventive love letter to Tokyo.
