Momo Films focuses on introducing Japanese films to North American audiences

Momo Films’ first distribution is ‘My Small Land’ which won Special Mention, Amnesty International Film Award at Berlin International Film Festival in Feb 2022.

My Small Land

For Sarya (17), a Kurdish refugee girl in Japan, life seems to be looking up; her grades at school are enough to pursue college, she’s surrounded with good friends and her relationship with Sota is becoming special. Sarya’s life becomes upside down, however, when she learns that her family’s refugee status is turned down, restricting her family of work and traveling across the city. Her father, who had continued to work to sustain a living, is taken into custody for illegal employment. Sarya is now suddenly forced into a situation where she is responsible not only for her younger siblings but for her very existence.
