A two-minute video using only images and sound, but no narration, has been produced by a leading film director in collaboration with over 20 research laboratories of the University of Tokyo to showcase the University’s excellence and societal role to audiences in Japan and around the world. The video can be viewed on the UTokyo YouTube channel.
An FAQ page is also provided, with answers to questions such as why “UTokyo/Society” was chosen as the title, or what is the significance of the left/right division of the screen, or where specific research scenes in the video were taken. We hope that this page will help you get a better understanding of the meanings implied as you watch this short video.
