A Rainbow Without Rain

Like a big, consensual hug from a nonbinary person dressed in a sheep costume, “Queer Japan” is the very best kind of documentary: The kind that leaves you feeling very intimately connected to its subjects. Writer Anne Ishii and writer/director Graham Kolbeins opt not to lecture or preach, not to anchor the film on a linear timeline filled with historic milestones.
