Tazuko Sakane & Kinuyo Tanaka — The First Two Female Directors in Japan

When I was thinking about my next blog post, a lot of western filmmakers came to mind. Actually, not a lot, but enough. In case you don’t know this, I lived in South East Asia for 6 years, so I decided to dive into Asian filmmakers instead. I chose Japan, simply because I really enjoy the works of Akira Kurosawa.
