72 hours

[TREASURE BOX JAPAN|mipformats 2016]
NHK's long-running popular series since 2006. Ranked No. 1 for viewer satisfaction.
‘72 hours’ is an extremely unique format of human-interest documentary. For the duration of 72 hours, cameras target and record a single location. There are no preconceived scripts or artificially ""created"" stories. The purpose is to remain completely true to the reality of what the camera captures within the given time frame, and get up-close to the human mind. The locations chosen are ordinary places including restaurants, airports and service stations. These seemingly mundane places soon reveal real lives of people that anybody can relate to.
‘72 hours’ spotlights the diverse, lively, and the sometimes unusual "reality" of people and their emotions.
