After the Storm


Location: Redstone Theater

Followed by a reception

Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda. Japan. 2016. 117 mins. New York Premiere. In Japanese with English subtitles. A Film Movement release. With Hiroshi Abe, Yoko Maki, Taiyo Yoshizawa, Kirin Kiki. The latest film from Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (After Life, Still Walking) establishes a style and tone all its own, alighting on comedy, family drama, and shaggy-dog noir. Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Maki) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to find his footing and maintain a relationship with his young son, until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. After the Storm opens in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on March 17.

Preceded by Untitled (Dir. Björn Kämmerer. 2016, 4 mins. 35mm). Austrian avant-garde filmmaker creates a shimmering study in geometry and light through the slats of a Venetian blind. And Balloonfest (Dir. Nathan Truesdell. 2016, 6 mins.). In 1986, Cleveland sought to lift spirits by launching a record 1.5 million balloons into the sky, but unpredictable winds and a boat accident in Lake Erie brought what might have been a harmless publicity stunt crashing down to earth.
