One of my favorite short films ever is a 2006 30-minute flick called Anti-Sex, directed by Ryotaro Muramatsu. It’s about a high school girl named Ai whose father’s death left her in charge of a love hotel. It’s always been a family business, and because she’s been so over-exposed to sex since childhood, she’s totally not interested in it. At all. This is a really cute, hip, fun comedy about love and sex and Japan.
It’s playing tomorrow as part of a shorts series at the SF Int’l Asian American Film Festival.
