A Dialogue: Living Harmony

Co-Presented with the Japan Society Innovators Network

This directorial debut by Chigumi Obayashi (daughter of Nobuhiko Obayashi and co-writer of his cult-classic HOUSE) is a documentary that sheds light on the town of Usuki in Oita Prefecture, Japan that came together in 2010 to build the Usuki Compost Manufacturing Center in an effort to revitalize itself through sustainable means. Through the town’s story and its unconventional narrative structure, the film poses universal questions about the future of food and the environment. The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A between Obayashi and Richard McCarthy, Executive Director of Slow Food USA and a member of Japan Society’s Innovators Network. Followed by a reception with food provided by Okonomi restaurant.
2014, 65 min., Blu-ray, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Chigumi Obayashi.
Tickets: $20/$15 Japan Society members, seniors & students
This presentation is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts’ Electronic Media and Film Presentation Funds grant program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
