Introduction and Q&A with director Masashi Yamamoto

Special Guests: Yui Takagi, Shigetaka Komatsu

The latest from writer-director Masashi Yamamoto (Three☆Points, JAPAN CUTS 2011), a leading light of Japan’s independent film scene, is an impressively multi-layered drama revolving around religious cults, strained family relationships, fractured identities, and the yakuza. Minjung, a young zainichi Korean woman, draws a small but fervent following as the puppet leader of God’s Water, a cult in which she is said to communicate with a water oracle in order to heal pain of the damaged and lonely. When her following starts to pick up and her estranged father enters the picture, things start to unravel, prompting Minjung to seek out her roots, and ultimately find herself.

Japan. 2014. 129 min. HDCAM, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Masashi Yamamoto. With Hyunri, Shuri, Jun Murakami.

“A penetrating glimpse into the workings of a religious cult in Tokyo's Korean community” -Maggie Lee, Variety
