The Great Beyond (January 11-27)
After Life (Wandafuru Raifu, ワンダフルライフ) (Japan, Hirokazu Kore-eda, 1998)
If you had to choose one memory to keep for eternity, what would it be? In a bland limbo, two counsellors, Takashi and Shiori, help the recently deceased to make this choice, and through their humour and compassion begin to reconsider their own memories too. With subtle beauty, director Kore-eda reveals that while our happiest memories may be simple, their meaning lies in the sense they give of living fully in the moment.
