The Compassionate Cinema of Hirokazu Kore-eda
Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Jun 30 2022.
Thursday, June 9, 2022 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
Hirokazu Kore-eda’s films have touched the hearts and stimulated the minds of audiences and critics throughout the world. Their beautifully understated narratives embrace and expand our notions of family and community and offer us ways to reflect upon the power of forgiveness as an essential key to survival and well-being. Films to be discussed include: Maborosi (Maboroshi no Hikari, 1995); After Life (Wandafuru Raifu, 1998); Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary, 2015); and Shoplifters (Manbiki Kazoku, 2018).
