Foreign Film Series: Still Walking
November 7, 2013 from 7:30 p.m.–10:00 p.m.
The lyrical, profoundly moving Still Walking is the most personal work to date from contemporary Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda. Fashioned as a tribute to his parents, the film depicts one day in the life of the Yokoyamas, gathered together for a celebratory ritual that only gradually makes itself clear. Rather than focus on big dramatic moments, Kore-eda relies on simple gestures and domestic routines (especially cooking) to evoke a family’s entire life, its deep regrets and its daily joys. Still Walking is an extraordinary portrayal of the ties that bind us.
