Introduction and Q&A with director Satoko Yokohama

Takuji Kameoka has made a career out of masterful performances for the silver screen and he would be a household name—if it weren't for the fact that his filmography consists entirely of bit parts. As the prospect of a breakout role in a foreign arthouse director's newest work appears, so too does the possibility of winning the heart of izakaya owner Azumi Murota. In her hotly anticipated follow-up to the breakout Bare Essence of Life (aka Ultra Miracle Love Story, JAPAN CUTS 2010), director Satoko Yokohama adapts Akito Inui's original novel, crafting this quietly daring tribute to the workaday human magic underlying the gleam of cinema. Ken Yasuda, known for TEAM NACS and many voice performances for Studio Ghibli, is irresistible in the film's title role, while Yokohama regular Kumiko Aso shines just as brightly.

2016. 123 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Satoko Yokohama. With Ken Yasuda, Kumiko Aso, Shohei Uno, Hirofumi Arai, Shota Sometani.

"Yokohama's little salute to the Japanese film industry." —Kaori Shoji, The Japan Times
