“The Mourning Forest (Mogari no mori)”: Film screening with Naomi Kawase, 3/27/08

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes 2007, this film pairs an elderly man whose dementia confines him to a nursing home and the young nurse who befriends him. On this unexpected journey of discovery, an eloquent story unfolds against the lush and tranquil setting of western Japan, where Kawase’s natural touch as a filmmaker creates an inner geography of emotion. 2007, Japan/France, 35mm, in Japanese with English subtitles, 97 minutes.

This program is copresented with the Institute for Advanced Study Film Collaborative and the Consortium for the Study of the Asias, University of Minnesota.
