Michael Moore in Shibuya, Tokyo
Michael Moore was in Shibuya today filming with what looked like the NHK film crew. I was just passing through and saw him as they were filming near Hachiko and Center-gai.
I didn’t want to get in the way of the filming so here are just a couple of shots from around the Scramble Crossing area. After that it looked like Michael and his crew were heading up Center-gai to check out some shops.
Not sure what they were filming for but probably has some connection with his latest film, and also a number of press conferences. From dailylife.com article:
Director Michael Moore attends the ‘Capitalism: A Love Story’ press conference at Tosho Hall on November 30, 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. The film will open at a limited number of theaters in Tokyo and Osaka on December 5, and throughout the rest of Japan on January 9, 2010.
and from the Kyodo article:
U.S. documentary filmmaker Michael Moore urged people in Japan Monday to get back a social security system based on the spirit of mutual trust, warning that the country appears less caring following the excessive reign of ”conservative” governments.
I also posted my iPhone snap at dannychoo.com Tokyo Live Blogging site.
Have you seen any of Michael’s movies? What do you think of them? Are you going to see this latest film?
