Little Miss Sumo

19 mins


Colorado Premiere
Because of sumo wrestling traditions, Japanese women are banned from competing professionally in the sport. But it’s all female sumo champion Hiyori Kon has ever wanted to do — and she’s damn good at it. This beautifully crafted film follows her awakenings about her sport, and her decision to try to change its outdated ways. “If we each raise our voice while also spreading sumo around the world, then I believe there will be more people willing to fight gender inequality with us,” she says.
