Kansai TV's Elpis to be screened at content marketplace, Mipcom Cannes

The event will take place on 18 October.

Mumbai: RX France and Kansai TV have announced that event series Elpis will be this year’s Asian World Premiere at the entertainment content marketplace, Mipcom Cannes. It takes place in Cannes, France next month.

The event will take place on 18 October. The premiere screening will be followed by Q&A with cast member Toko Miura (star of 2021 Best Foreign Language Academy Award winner “Drive My Car”) and producer Ayumi Sano (My Dear Exes, “Quartet”).

Inspired by multiple true cases of false accusations, Elpis follows Ena Asakawa (Nagasawa), a former network anchor whose star has faded due to scandal and now helms a late-night, less-formal magazine show. Under-rated and rookie director Takuro Kishimoto (Gordon Maeda) begins to doubt a death row conviction, which, together with Asakawa, make-up artist Cherry (Miura), and star reporter Shouichi Saito (Ryohei Suzuki), they investigate and unravel as a state-wide conspiracy to cover-up.

Kansai TV executive managing director Miho Okada said, "Though it deals with a serious issue, Elpis has darkly comedic dialogues along with a plot that will pack an emotional punch for viewers. We are very proud of what the amazing production team and performers have created, and to share it first in Cannes with our global industry is a privilege. We believe it is a show that will surprise people in Japan and internationally this fall."

Mipcom Cannes & MipJunior director Lucy Smith said, "The global appetite for authentic, authored international drama has never been stronger. The standard has also never been higher, with Elpis yet another exceptional example. We are thrilled to stage it and to bring the tradition of the Asian World Premiere back to its full strength."
