In one of the greatest feats in all of sports history, a Japanese women's volleyball team won a record 258 consecutive matches and captured gold at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. With astonishing archival footage of their relentless training, intense matches and colorful clips from anime series the women inspired during their glory, director Julien Faraut shows how this team of textile workers dominated their sport and rose to international stardom. They were 'The Witches of the Orient' and they were extraordinary. —Joseph Hernandez
