Cat Velez - 16th Aug 2016

Caviar, along with Ceka, have produced Lost Youth, a provocative short film by director Taichi Kimura in collaboration with Boiler Room. Producer Ydizzy's contribution to the film's soundtrack with his song Meytonight, has been paired with this video, which is made up of sequences from the film.

In Lost Youth, Kimura plunges deep into the grim corners Tokyo, inspired by true stories of Japan’s youth - without filter or censorship. Capturing the restless chase for happiness in all its occasionally disturbing, tormented and dark manifestations, he aims to confronts his viewers with a Tokyo that can’t be ignored, while challenging his fellow Japanese filmmakers to tell honest stories - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
