65th Miura Award

"Yuko's Balance" Kenji Noguchi

Candidate works for 2021 are Yoichi Kamagari from "We Made a Beautiful Bouquet" (Nobuhiro Doi), Kenji Noguchi from "A Balance of Yuko", and Kohei Kato from "Last of the Wolves LEVEL2" (Kazuya Shiraishi). Mr. 3 works have been nominated. What is common to the jury works is that the candidates are almost the same generation as 41 and 42 years old, and it can be said that it is a representative work at the present time. It is also a selection meeting for Japanese filmmakers to enter a new generation. Of the three outstanding works, Mr. Noguchi's photography technique, which responded appropriately to the production and the play, contributed greatly to the work and was highly evaluated by the judges.
