Tanaka-san will not do callisthenics

Tanaka-San Will Not Do Callisthenics is Maree Delofski’s latest film and was completed in 2008. Filmed entirely in Japan, this documentary explores the ingenuity and determination of Tetsuro Tanaka who was dismissed from his job a quarter of century ago in a time when most Japanese workers believed they had a job for life. In a world that places a premium on conformity, Tanaka-san has found a way of staying true to himself, demanding an apology and re-instatement every day for twenty five years outside the company gate. Maree has written, directed and shot Tanaka-san Will Not Do Callisthenics.
