Q&A with SABU
SABU’s latest feature is an absurdist dramedy driven by random chance and fateful encounters, as three disparate characters inch closer to crossing paths. Hiroshi (Sho Aoyagi, also in SABU’s Mr. Long) is a small-time enka singer who dreams of global stardom; Takeru (Keita Machida) is intent on doing good deeds to undo the bad one that put his girlfriend in a coma; and ex-con Tetsuo (Nobuyuki Suzuki) is out for revenge against the yakuza gang that sent him to prison. Jam explores themes of fate and faith, guilt and retribution, coincidence and karmic payback before finally erupting into one of the cult director’s trademark foot chases.
