Synopsis / Plot
Dr. NakaMats is an octogenarian, demi-god in his native Japan and the world’s most prolific inventor, holding over 3300 patents. Edison by comparison had only 1,093. Some of his most famous include: the floppy disk, the CD, the DVD, the taxi cab meter, Cinemascope and even Karaoke. Eccentric to say the least, he sleeps four hours a day, eats only one meal, chooses his cameras by smell and has a serious belief that he will live to the ripe old age of 144. Here, in a vivid, often comic tour de force, Danish filmmaker Kaspar Astrup Schröder goes down the rabbit hole with NakaMats and finds an odd world of gadgets and gizmos where the inventor is king.
