In 1971, Nikkatsu launched its iconic "Roman Porno" film series and then steadily churned out hundreds of softcore films throughout the 70s and 80s. The series elevated pink films to a new level of profile and popularity with both commercial audiences and critics. To mark the 45th anniversary of Roman Porno, in 2016 the studio commissioned five films for the Roman Porno Reboot Project, with each filmmaker revisiting and reinterpreting the genre in his own way for the present day.
Twisted Justice director Shiraishi Kazuya's Dawn of the Felines follows three sex workers who ply the sleepless streets of Ikebukuro. The three women only know each other by their work pseudonyms and never ask about what led them to prostitution. Through their stories, encounters and struggles with single parenthood, homelessness and infertility, Dawn of the Felines depicts modern women's determined fight for survival.
