The Queer Japan Project, a new documentary by director Graham Kolbeins and co-writer Anne Ishii (Massive Goods), is in the works, and its main goal is to shed light on the lives of "artists, activists, and everyday people from across the spectrum of gender and sexuality in Japan."

According to the project's Kickstarter page, "The Queer Japan Project is a multimedia documentary providing portraits of a diverse group of individuals from across the spectrum of gender and sexuality in Japan. Artists, activists, community leaders, and everyday people will share an intimate look into the everyday triumphs and struggles of being a sexual minority in modern Japan. Through in-depth interviews and slice-of-life vignettes, Queer Japan will celebrate queer expression in Japan in many of its dazzling, prismatic varieties."
