Paul Zetter has been commissioned by Microsoft Philanthropies Asia/Pacific to create a series of short films in various Asia Pacific countries to highlight their work towards “Advancing a future that is for everyone.” Each film tells a powerful story of young people embracing digital technology to achieve their passions in the face of challenges and adversity.
In Japan, Paul created two inspiring films, Working for a Change, the story of Michiyo who is breaking free of conventional constraints and empowered to work anytime, anywhere while pursuing her dream as a web designer, and Pointing to the Future, featuring University of Tokyo philosophy student, Yunik Shin:
Paul says, “It was very humbling to film Yunik Shin in Tokyo. With a sharp sense of humour and interesting philosophical views about life and technology, it wasn’t difficult to be inspired.”
