THE NIGHT I SWAM

泳ぎすぎた夜 Takara – La nuit où j’ai nagé

Directed by Kohei Igarashi & Damien Manivel 2017, 79 min.

A poetic film that delves into the mind of a young child who embarks on a morning adventure in his snow covered small snowy village in northern Japan.
 
This charming non-verbal film is suitable for families and children!
Just before the break of dawn in a small town nestled within a valley in Aomori, a father tries not to wake his family as he quietly goes about preparing for his job at a fish market. However, his 6-year-old son is awoken by the noise. After his father leaves, the boy draws a picture of a fish with his crayons. The next morning, he deviates from his route to school, heading instead to the fish market in hopes of giving his father the picture he drew.
THE NIGHT I SWAM is a Japan-France co-production that is directed by Igarashi Kohei of HOLD YOUR BREATH LIKE A LOVER and Damien Manivel of A YOUNG POET. The film screened at the 74th Venice International Film Festival.

Starring Takara Kogawa, Keiki Kogawa, Chisato Kogawa, Takashi Kogawa
