YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Japanese film crew has been in the Youngstown area for three weeks now documenting the area.

The crew spoke about their project while after interviewing retired steel workers Saturday night.

They said the focus of their documentary is how Youngstown — which has seen a lot of job loss over the years — is changing the face of this year’s presidential election.

The four-member crew added that they will be in the area for another two weeks.
