Home / Now Showing / CODE NAME: NAGASAKI
Filmmaker Fredrik Hana crafts a meticulous narrative for his debut feature with a documentary so incredibly rich in content that it’s hard to believe it’s drawn from real life. Mixing multiple genres and styles, including live-action, animation, Kabuki and more, CODE NAME: NAGASAKI navigates the journey of Fredrik’s friend and colleague Marius on his search for the mother that gave him up for adoption whilst examining the notion of self through a richly imaginative perspective.
