One movie for one child = ¥100

For many children living in areas where there is no electricity, there is little information so they can only imagine themselves as the adults they come into contact with. We inspire children to dream more about their future through films. We create pop-up cinemas in village squares and school classrooms and show films that foster children's dreams and show the importance of hard work in the local language. Regardless of the environment in which we were born and raised, we want to create a world where children can have dream big.

Project Description

For many children in developing countries living in areas where there is no electricity, their future dreams are to become teachers and doctors. Because there is little information, they can only imagine themselves as the adults they come into contact with. We inspire children's dreams by delivering films and increasing their choices.
Staff members or "film delivery workers" carry screening equipment such as generators, projectors and speakers by using tuk-tuk (three-wheeled vehicle), and create pop-up cinemas in village squares and school classrooms. The films are curated for works that foster children's dreams and show the importance of hard work. After obtaining the rights to the films we cooperate with local voice actors, and make dubbed versions in the local language.

Regardless of the environment in which we were born and raised, we want to create a world where children can have a dream and open up their lives. For that purpose, we deliver movies to all children in a mobile cinema.

In 2017 she created "Phil and Mu" through crowdfunding, an animated movie without language, so that it can be viewed all of the world. "Phil and Mu" will also be screened at film festivals around the world, such as the Tokyo International Film Festival and the New York Children's Film Festival. Proceeds from the sales of Phil and Mu's goods go towards providing movies for children in poverty, for which WTP received the Good Design Award.
