Emily Larcombe

Emily Larcombe is the producer of ‘Invisible Languages: Okinawa’, an independent documentary film exploring the lived realities of the native languages in the Ryukyu islands in Japan. It is a film that aims to portray the complex nuances of Okinawa’s relationship with its indigenous identity as well as contribute to the wider discussion on the value of linguistic diversity.

Emily earned her BA in Modern and Medieval Languages from the University of Cambridge and her Master’s in Public Policy from the University of Tokyo and Sciences Po Paris. Fluent in English, French, Japanese, and Spanish, her research has involved comparative approaches to literary reinscriptions of linguistically marginal writers, as well as educational policies tackling diversity in Japan and the UK. Exploring diverse narratives and nurturing conversations on marginalized identities through the arts has been a long time passion.

As a student, she produced the first fully BAME Shakespeare production in Cambridge, and in 2017 she founded the University of Cambridge Asia Theatre Tour, a theatre company that performs and explores topics surrounding diversity through interactive workshops around venues in East Asia and the UK every year. In Japan, she also serves as one of the directors of WomEnpowered International and is a research collaborator for En-joi D&I Consulting.
