A screening of “Maborosi”, debut work of director Hirokazu Koeda, followed by a talk show featuring Kyoko Hidani, production manager and representative of HIFF, and Mr. Amir Naderi, the chairman of the review committee!
Director Hirokazu Koeda has received last year's Palme d'Or, the highest award at the Cannes International Film Festival, for his film “Shoplifters”. Hopes are high for his newest movie, “Shinjitsu”, starring Catherine Deneuve. HIFF will be screening the director's debut film and origin: “Maborosi”. This film has received high acclaim both within Japan and abroad, and was awarded the Gold Osella Award at the Venice International Film Festival. After the screening, a talk show will be held, featuring HIFF representative Kyoko Hidani and Amir Naderi, chairman of the review committee.
Hirokazu Koreeda made a Teru Miyamoto's novel into a film of the same title, Maboroshi (illusion). Ikuo and Yumiko are a young couple living in Osaka, but one day, Ikuo suddenly commits suicide and Yumiko falls into deep sorrow. A few years later, Yumiko, still having the pain in her heart, remarries to Tamio and moves to a small town in the Hokuriku region. This film is a story of loss and rebirth. It portrays Yumiko's heart delicately with images conscious of the lights in the screen.
