Hisashi Nozawa
One of Japan’s most successful scriptwriters of modern times, Nozawa’s work is loved and respected by both public and industry alike. Venice Film Festival Silver Lion winner and well-known living Japanese director Kitano (Beat) Takeshi chose a Nozawa script for his directorial debut - Sono Otoko Kyobo ni Tsuki (Violent Cop). Released from Argentina to Finland and Indonesia to the States, the multi-award winning Violent Cop went on to be acclaimed as a landmark of Japanese and world cinema. Countless Nozawa scripts have become repeat-screening TV drama series, attracting top casts, consistently breaking ratings records, and going on to be remade internationally.
