Japan. Dir. Pedro González-Rubio. 2012, 72 mins. DCP. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, Inori is the haunting, poetic, and atmospheric second feature from González-Rubio (Alamar). In collaboration with Japanese filmmaker Naomi Kawase, González-Rubio explores a tiny mountain community in Japan made up entirely of the elderly. While the younger generations have left for bigger cities, the scattered few remaining inhabitants perform their everyday activities in peaceful and reflective solitude.
