Ayako Imamura, 112 minutes, Documentary, in Japanese with Arabic and English subtitles, Japan, 2016.  

3,824 kilometers in 57 days: in the summer of 2015, filmmaker Ayako Imamura, who was born deaf, started a bicycle journey through Japan. For her this was a physical challenge and an experiment in communication. Having felt frustrated when communicating with hearing people, she decided to confront the problem head on, exploring not only her country, but also herself in this documentary road movie.   

The film won the Nippon Visions Audience Award at the 2017 Nippon Connection Japanese Film Festival.
