LONG RIVER FRIEND

video/10min/color
Director: Shuji Arai

Takashi, a high school student, is rejected by the girl that he likes because of his long hair. So he resolves to cut it short, breaking off his allegiance with the "Long-haired League" that his family has been loyal to for years. The Long-haired League was a solemn promise made with their host family in the Philippines. The tear that Takashi sheds when he asks for permission is moving, and it helps establish this outlandish premise as well as convey the gravity of his decision. Then, when a friend tells him about the legendary indies band "LRF," he discovers a secret about a family member's past.
