Under The Cherry Tree - Ginmaku 2016

New Films from Japan

Vom 14. bis 17. April 2016 findet im Houdini das zweite Ginmaku-Festival statt, welches neue Filme aus Japan präsentiert.

«Under The Cherry Tree»
The feature documentary debut of 29-year-old director Kei Tanaka. In the Japanese town of Kawasaki, elderly residents who have lived hard lives are now facing their own death at a public housing complex called 'Danchi'. The young director explores and depicts the ageing population in Japan by focusing on the personal lives of few individuals who live quietly on the outskirts of society. While some of the protagonists chose to interact and establish friendships with their fellow elderly residents, others prefer to spend the rest of their years in solitary.

Der Film wird in der japanischen Originalversion mit englischen Untertiteln gezeigt.
