Check out a first look video introduction to Berlinale Panorama title A Balance, above. The 10-minute video sees director Yujiro Harumoto, who made his debut with critically acclaimed indie drama Going The Distance in 2016, discuss making the film.

It stars Kumi Takiuchi (It Feels So Good) as a documentary filmmaker investigating the suicides of a student and teacher, who are alleged to have had an affair, when a scandal emerges much closer to home.
