In a Hollywood that is increasingly obsessed with superhero blockbusters, the place to see many acclaimed filmmakers these days is on the small screen. In Japan, though, the Wowow entertainment channel has been producing original dramas by local auteurs for some time.

One such auteur is Kiyoshi Kurosawa, whose five-part sci-fi series on Wowow has been edited into a theatrical film titled “Yocho ‘Foreboding.'” It’s a companion piece to Kurosawa’s “Before We Vanish,”which was released in September. Both are based on a play by Tomohiro Maekawa about an unusual alien invasion.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
