‘Our Park’ A Documentary on Tokyo’s Miyashita Park

Having documented the ongoing struggles of the homeless inhabitants of Tokyo’s Miyashita Park, “Our Park” is a short documentary that takes a further in-depth look into public space. The selling and subsequent purchase of the park by Nike which resulted in its renaming are highlighted. Furthermore, the artistic aspect of the park is brought to light as it serves as a place for many artists to convene and promote their creativity.
