Dir. Hirokazu Koreeda (1995); Japan, 110m
Starring: Makiko Esumi, Takashi Naitô, Tadanobu Asano
Japanese with English subtitles

FRIDAY, JUNE 7TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM

SUNDAY, JUNE 9TH AT 3:00PM

Hirokazu Koreeda’s directorial debut tells the story of Yumiko, a young mother haunted by the past loss of her grandmother and the recent loss of her husband. Koreeda’s interest in the emotional impact of light is exemplified through Maborosi’s shadowy visuals and Michiko Kitamura’s costume design, created specifically for the film’s natural lighting. With a background in documentary, Koreeda’s search for truth continues in the characters of Maborosi, who are portrayed with a believable array of human strengths and fallibilities. The Japanese title, 幻の光 (Maboroshi no hikari), translates to “Phantom Light,” an idea that captures Moborosi’s exploration of the visible and invisible, the living and the lingering spirits, the real and the fictional.
