The documentary is titled “The Sion Sono” and is directed by Arata Oshima, son of the legendary Nagisa Oshima.

Shot during the making of Sono’s The Whispering Star, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, the documentary exposes rare moments where the director faces dilemmas and anxiety.

“It’s such an honour to have this documentary made but to be honest, I’m a little embarrassed,” said Sono. “I’m looking forward to the reaction of the audiences after they see my private life.”

It will be released in Japan on May 14th, 2016 along with his latest film, “The Whispering Star”.
