Nude at Heart

JAPAN, FRANCE, USA / 2021 / 109 min
Director: Okutani Yoichiro


The odoriko who, costume cases in hand, travel between strip theatres across Japan. Their everyday lives in the dressing room, the bare faces they show in the stage wings, the thoughts they commit to striptease—recorded as scenes of a once-in-a-lifetime encounter. A new film from the director of Children of Soleil (YIDFF 2011).
