Shozin Fukui (福居ショウジン, Fukui Shōjin) is a Japanese film director and screenwriter. He has produced two experimental shorts (Gerorisuto, and Caterpillar) and two full-length films (964 Pinocchio, and Rubber's Lover). These four movies were widely available, having been issued on DVD by Unearthed Films. However, these releases have since gone out of print. He has released four more films since then (Onne, Den-Sen, The Hiding and 『S-94』). These are almost completely unknown outside Japan.
964 Pinocchio and Rubber's Lover are considered important, core films of the Japanese cyberpunk genre.964 Pinocchio is often compared to Shinya Tsukamoto's cyberpunk classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man; Fukui worked on the crew for Tetsuo. Many fans and critics consider Fukui's aesthetic to be sufficiently divergent from Tsukamoto's for his films to stand on their own, even considering the extremely deep similarities.
