Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Ikuo Sekimoto's O-Yo is an erotically charged drama about artists and a model. Yumeji Takehisa (Naoto Takenaka) and Seiun Ito (Tetsuya Kumakawa) both hire model Kaneyo Sasaki (Aki Shibuya). The artists have very different approaches to the work, causing the model to alter her perceptions of art, sex, and life. O-Yo was screened at the Hawaii Film Festival. The artists depicted in the film are real-life figures, and the film is based on their memoirs.
