In this image released by Japanese film director Shingo Ota, Ota playing the leading role in his film "Fragile" heads out for a day of labor in Kamagasaki in Osaka, western Japan. Japan’s biggest slum is visible just blocks from bustling restaurants and shops in Osaka, the country’s second-largest city. But it cannot be found on official maps. Nor did it appear in the recent Osaka Asian Film Festival, after Ota pulled it, accusing city organizers of censorship. Osaka officials asked Ota to remove scenes and lingo that identify the slum, on the grounds that it was insensitive to residents. (AP Photo/Shingo Ota) less
