I Wish - Hirokazu Koreeda

In Kagoshima, the boy Koichi lives with his mother Nozomi in the house of his grandparents. Koichi misses his younger brother Ryunosuke and his father Kenji, who live in Fukuoka, and he dreams of his family coming together again. One day, Koichi overhears that the energy released by two bullet trains passing by each other would grant wishes and he invites his two best friends, Tasuku and Makoto, to travel to the point of intersection of the two trains. Koichi also tells his plan to Ryunosuke that invites his three best friends to join him. Soon the seven children arrive to the meeting point in the journey of discoveries.

Mubi Presents: Tony Conrad: Completely In The Present

We’re proud to partner up with MUBI to honor the multi-disciplinarian genius of Tony Conrad, who died last year. Ridiculously charismatic and talented, Conrad takes center stage in this documentary—which Tate recently premiered in the UK—where the scope of his influence and power of his personality is a delight to behold.

The acclaimed and gripping film examines the pioneering life and works of the artist, musician, and educator. One the great American artists of our time, yet to the world at large Conrad remains criminally under-appreciated.

NB: Attendees will also receive a free 3-month subscription to MUBI!


MUBI is a curated online cinema bringing you cult, classic, independent, and award-winning movies. Available in over 200 countries around the globe and on multiple devices, a subscription to MUBI is a passport to the world of cinema.
