Naomi Kawase Focus 2: Mother

  • Various

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

The second programme in our Naomi Kawase focus features a loose trilogy of films, not about her birth mother, but about the great-aunt who raised her – Katatsumori (1994), See Heaven (1995) and Hi wa katabuki (1996). Kawase’s warmth towards this twinkling eyed, green-fingered old woman (who tolerates the camera regularly poked in her face with good-natured grumbling) is tempered by the inescapable sense of loneliness at having been abandoned by her parents. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see this collection of achingly beautiful films. Part of Glasgow Short Film Festival
