Tokyo Freeters

Tokyo Freeters
Marc Petitjean
2010 / France, Japan / 48min


In Japan, more than four million young people survive by taking on precarious jobs. They are called “freeters”. The film gives voice to these “discard-after-use” workers, who regard their situation with both lucidity and desperation, as well as to ex-freeters who have become activists in the fight against exclusions.


Marc Petitjean is a photographer and film-maker. His films highlight unusual people confronted with artistic, social, economical or political situations. After his films Atomic Wounds, Tokyo Freeters, and Living Treasure, he concludes his series about Japan with From Hiroshima to Fukushima.
