Foreign Film Festival—Sasame-yuki

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 2:30pm

As a part of the foreign language curriculum, students, faculty, staff, and all other Antioch community members are invited to attend an Antioch foreign film festival. On November 28, the festival will screen the Japanese film Sasame-yuki (The Makioka Sisters by Kon Ichikawaa, 1983). This sensuously beautiful film chronicles the activities of four sisters who gather in Kyoto every year to view the cherry blossoms. It paints a vivid portrait of the pre-war lifestyle of the wealthy Makioka family from Osaka and draws a parallel between their activities and the seasonal variations in Japan. Snacks and drinks will be served.
