Ririka of the Star

Ririka of the Star


Everyone has a dream. For Moe, it is to be a stripper, much to her father’s objections as he resents her unknowingly living up to the legacy of her absent mother. Is there something that can change his mind? Perhaps seeing the art of stripping for himself…

This is long-time actor, critic, programmer SHIOTA’s directorial debut and he has gathered together experienced talent such as cinematographer ASHIZAWA Akiko behind the camera and veteran directors HIROKI Ryuichi and MIIKE Takashi in front of the camera. The result is a tongue-in-cheek silent film that invites viewers to experience the magic of stripping as the tastefully-shot climactic moment is given full sound and dazzling visuals to celebrate the beauty of the nude body.
