Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2016

What happens when an ordinary nuclear family lives in different realities in a city that is arguably at its most advanced? What happens when the line between the reality and phantasm starts to disappear, when a computer game is (re-)defining the spaces of existence, when a giant green iguana is the observer of the realities of their being? IGUANA TOKYO tells the story of this family who installs a computer game in their small flat in Tokyo. The rule of the game is simple: the one who wins, leads the house and accordingly each one's own room enlarges or shrinks via moving walls. As the computer game becomes the center of their ordinary lives, the relationship among the three starts to shift. Only the iguana can witness this dangerous tension among the mother, father and their 14-year-old daughter.
