Still Walking - a film by Hirokazu Kore-eda

From Hirokazu Kore-eda
Still Walking
Sat May 7 6:00 + Tue May 10 7:30 
The Carnegie Arts Center  

More information and ticket sales:

STILL WALKING is a wistful and subtly humorous snapshot of contemporary Japanese family life, sharing the precious and
sometimes vexing aspects of family relationships.

Regarded as one of the best Asian directors currently working, Hirokazu Kore-eda creates delicate yet profound revelations
of love, tension, longing for acceptance, regret and respect in a family that is transitioning between generations.
Still Walking ranked in the top five at MetaCritic of all movies for 2009; and has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100%, but was
not shown in the Cincinnati market when released in 2009.

The post-film discussion will examine the nature of Japanese culture, particularly the sense of family and community in
relation to coping with personal loss. We'll also learn more about culture and family in the context of reaction to the
current devastation in Japan.

Discussion leaders include Mr. Mikio Nishizu of Frost Brown Todd (Saturday) and Ms. Carolyn Barricklow of the Japan America
Society (Tuesday).
Come early for the social hour, cash bar and a la carte dinner-by-the-plate one hour before the screenings, catered by
Europa Bistro & Caf.

STILL WALKING screens Saturday, May 7, 6:00 pm and again Tuesday, May 10, 7:30 pm at the Carnegie Arts Center in Covington.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door, with discounts for students and ETA members.

Film, ticket, director and speaker details are available at the website
or by calling 859 781 8151.
