Mike Mills recently made a film about the concept of depression in Japan. It went to a few film festivals but I don't think it ever saw a release...

Well, Hisae tells me the thesis in that trailer is simply wrong -- before 2000 many Japanese spoke of "utsu", and there was quite a bit of "dark" advertising in the 1960s for antidepressants etc in Japan. Locally-produced drugs, not imported.

Maybe that's why the film didn't get picked up for distribution! I like Mike Mills but he can't be very good at research...
