The Kirishima Thing
桐島、部活やめるってよ | Daihachi Yoshida, 2012
Japan | 103 minutes

New York Premiere!

When high school star athlete and all-around golden boy Kirishima drops out of the volleyball team and disappears, his fellow students try to figure out what his motivations and whereabouts could be, and uncomfortably take stock of their own place in the school’s social structure. A careful examination of the power struggles, class warfare, social angst, and drama of an entire high school as seen through the lens of Kirishima’s absence.
