The company which produced this short film (Qotori Films) no longer exists and the director’s facebook page disappeared for some time… the good news is that director Daisuke Shimada is back in business on both Instagram and Facebook and it is now possible to purchase the Tadaima DVD again !
TADAIMA on DAISUKE SHIMADA STORES
The DVD is a nice single disc digipack with a booklet, the film on HD and a bonus music clip, an alternate version of Tin Plate/ブリキ by Radwimps, featuring Nana Komatsu. The short film was released in 2013, and it actually was the first real cinema appearance of the actress, before The World of Kanako.
It’s a moving story, a trip on a taxi to the Tohoku region where a teen girl, Sumire, has lost her home and parents because of the terrible tsunami which hit Japan on March 11, 2011. More details about Tadaima on this post which was published in June 2019: Tadaima Short Film.
