Shot in gorgeous, painterly style by master cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa, this delicately delivered indictment of societal oppression was heralded by Akira Kurosawa as a 'great masterpiece that could only be made [...]

The Slow Way Home: How a Society Intent on Keeping Streets Safe for Kids Made Them Walkable for Everyone

"The way children travel to school structures daily life for families around the world--but differs dramatically. In Japan, 98 percent of children walk to school every day, unaccompanied by a parent.
