Documentary Films Production

As part of its activities, Japan Desk Scotland produces and makes documentary films, except ‘St Kilda Tapes in Tohoku’ which was produced by JDS but was made by David Allison.

JDS makes these documentaries in order to facilitate discussion at Japan-themed workshops in Scotland, Romania and the Philippines and at Scotland-themes workshops in Japan.
