EthnoKino: Hikikomori - A Deafening Silence

There are between 600 000 – 1 million Japanese youths who stay hidden away in their bedroom, sometimes cut off from all kind of social interaction for several years. These youths, named hikikomori, are renounced in Japanese society as being the ‘lost generation’. This film meets some of them in a rare center set up to help them re-socialize, and tries to understand the reasoning.
