TBA Studios Bringing Japanese Film 'PLAN 75' to Philippine Cinemas Soon

TBA Studios, one of the leading film production and distribution companies in the Philippines, has just acquired the exclusive Philippine theatrical rights to the award-winning film "Plan 75". Written and directed by acclaimed short film director Chie Hayakawa, this critically lauded dystopian drama made its international premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and won the Camera d’Or Special Mention Prize. The film is also Japan's official film entry in the 95th Academy Awards.

Based on Hayakawa’s segment of the same title from the 2018 anthology film "Ten Years Japan", "Plan 75" paints a harrowing look at a not-so-distant future when the Japanese government launches a program that encourages voluntary euthanasia for senior citizens to remedy a super-aged society.
The film stars veteran actress Chieko Baisho as an elderly woman whose means of survival is to vanish, Hayato Isomura, a pragmatic Plan 75 salesman, and Filipina actress Stefanie Arianne as a caregiver working overseas to support an ailing daughter back home.

Aside from its multi-cultural cast, Plan 75 also boasts of an international co-production spanning representatives from Japan, France, and the Philippines. It is executive produced by Keisuke Konishi (Happinet Phantom Studios), Eiko Mizuno Gray (Loaded Films), Mizue Kunizane and Hiroyuki Ishigaki (Dongyu Club), Frédéric Corvez and Maéva Savinien (Urban Factory), Wilfredo C. Manalang, George Sommerrock, and Alicia Catubay-Watt (Fusee), and co-produced by Alemberg Ang (Daluyong Studios).
With its theme of family, death, loss, and a sense of community, TBA Studios is confident that the moving drama would resonate with Filipino audiences.

The acquisition of Plan 75 is part of the company’s strategic plan to continue expanding their library with diverse offerings that cater to a global Filipino audience. The studio recently released the Michelle Yeoh multiverse adventure "Everything Everywhere All At Once", the award-winning music documentary "Fanny: The Right To Rock", and coming later this year is the Cannes Palme d’Or winner "Triangle of Sadness".
