ABOUT THE FILM
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, this elegant triptych presents three short tales of women in contemporary Japan. An actress realizes her best friend has fallen for her ex; a college student attempts to seduce her accomplished professor; and two women forge a new connection at their college reunion. With this intimate, potent trifecta, up-and-coming director Ryūsuke Hamaguchi further establishes himself as one of international cinema’s most intriguing new voices. “An overwhelming film, amongst the best of the year, and a beautiful reminder of all the lives being lived in spite of our oddly lifeless time” (The Film Stage).
COVID POLICY FOR ATTENDEES
Masks are required indoors and when interacting with Museum staff. Masks are highly encouraged outdoors, especially when social distancing cannot be easily maintained.
