Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

The first of two programmes devoted to the Japanese filmmaker Naomi Kawase, who at twenty-seven became the youngest ever winner of the Caméra d’Or at Cannes. Her early short films are like fragile 8mm sketch books,capturing her immediate world with a disarming openness that is both beautiful and at times devastating. Featuring Embracing (1992), about Kawase’s search for the father she never knew, and the extraordinary documentary/fiction hybrid Kya Ka Ra Ba A (2001), in which she attempts to find a connection with him after his death. Part of Glasgow Short Film Festival
