April 16, 2010

Emil Langballe directed this short documentary called “Our Park”, which is about the ongoing struggles of the homeless inhabitants of Tokyo’s Miyashita Park and their fight against corporate sportswear giants Nike. Emil’s work takes us to great depths about public space in Japan, the selling and subsequent purchase of the park by Nike, its subsequent effects, and parks communal benefits for artists and the likes. Definitely a very insightful documentary that you must watch. Check it out.
