THE WITCHES OF THE ORIENT d. Julien Faraut, 2021 + Recorded Panel Discussion with the director, Manga expert Paul Gravett & Maria Bertelli, England volleyball player at Bertha DocHouse (14 JUL 18:30).

  • “Meet the former players of the Japanese women’s volleyball team, known as the ‘Witches of the Orient’ for their seemingly supernatural powers on the courts – including a staggering 258-match winning streak. Now in their 70s, they reunite around a dinner table, sifting through the facts and fables of their careers – from the early days as a workers’ team at a textile factory in Osaka, up to their triumph at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.”
