日本作曲家佐村河內守,1963年出生於廣島,高中時開始出現偏頭痛,35歲時完全失聰。他的音樂在日本廣為流傳,曾獲譽為數碼時代的貝多芬。2013年日本311大地震之後,佐村河內在電影節目上以他的音樂安撫亡魂,備受大眾肯定。2014年2月,大學講師新垣隆發表了一則震驚全日本的聲明,他表示佐村河內大部份作品都是由他捉刀!又聲稱佐村河內並沒有聽力障礙。不久,佐村河內召開記者會,向社會大眾致歉,但堅稱自己的聽障是真的。媒體大肆炒作這個醜聞,佐村河內自此避開公眾活動。

森達也取得了佐村河內的信任,進入他與妻子隱身的公寓,與他進行尖銳的訪談,也記錄了他與其他來訪媒體的互動。影片沒有提出黑白分明的答案,卻讓我們看到現代人對名利的渴望與媒體的本質。今年電影節亦會放映森達也另外兩部舊作《A》(1998)及《A2》(2001)。

Director: Tatsuya Mori

Mamoru Samuragochi, a musical genius who was once crowned Japan's Beethoven in digital era because of his deafness, found himself at the centre of a scandal in February 2014 when it was revealed that he had hired a ghostwriter, a university lecturer named Takashi Niigaki, to compose most of his famous music since the early 1990s. To add insult to injury, Niigaki further accused Samuragochi of faking his deafness in order to construct a mythical persona around himself.

Director Tatsuya Mori gains the trust of the disgraced composer and his wife, making repeated visits to the house where the couple are in hiding, unmasking the real story behind the media frenzy. A (1998) and A2 (2001), two of the old works by Mori will also be shown in this festival.
