KORE-EDA + KIKI

This series celebrates the accomplishments of master filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda and also the prolific actress Kirin Kiki who sadly passed away in September. We will be screening three films by Kore-eda – two of which includes Kirin Kiki in the cast. Kiki was a frequent collaborator in his films, including Shoplifters, her last film, which won Kore-eda the prestigious Palme D’Or at Cannes earlier this year.

AFTER LIFE ワンダフルライフ

December 18, 2018 6:30 PM

Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda [1998] 118 min.

In this acclaimed Japanese film, a group of people who have recently died find themselves in a limbo realm resembling a relatively mundane building. Counselors, including Takashi (Arata) and Shiori (Erika Oda), are on hand to help new arrivals pick one memory from their lives to bring with them into eternity. Once the memories are chosen, the staff makes a short film representing each one, and the films make up a collage of thoughtful cinematic moments.

Films in the series:

November 13 – LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

December 4 – OUR LITTLE SISTER

December 14 – LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

December 18 – AFTER LIFE
