Tanaka-san Will Not Do Callisthenics

Tanaka-san Will Not Do Callisthenics
A documentary by Maree Delofski

Filmed entirely in Japan, this documentary explores the ingenuity and determination of Tetsuro Tanaka who was dismissed from his job a quarter of century ago in a time when most Japanese workers believed they had a job for life. In a world that places a premium on conformity, Tanaka-san has found a way of staying true to himself, demanding an apology and re-instatement every day for twenty five years outside the company gate.
