Brakeless

.

In April 2005, a commuter train crashed into an apartment building in Japan and killed 107 people when a driver tried to catch up with an 80-second delay. Brakeless looks at a society which does not seem to know when to stop its pursuit of efficiency. It examines the way in which the characteristics conventionally considered to be national virtues – punctuality and loyalty to protocol – have become societal impediments and ultimately, dangers to the people of Japan. The film revisits the train journey and follows the aftermath through the eyes of the survivors.
