Babcock Theatre: East Asian Film Festival – Japan
November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
As a part of this fall’s East Asia Semester, the MSU Billings Office of International Studies is offering three film festival events. The final event showcases the Japanese film, “Still Walking.” This event is free and open to the public!
Ted Kim, a cinema professor at MSU Billings, will be giving an introduction to discuss the film’s cultural impact, cinematography, and more.
“Still Walking” is a 2008 Japanese film edited, written, and directed by award-winning Hirokazu Kore-eda. The film is a portrait of a family over roughly 24 hours when the grown children visit their elderly parents to commemorate the tragic death of the eldest son 15 years prior.
The film was widely praised by critics and won the Golden Astor for Best Film at the 2008 Mar del Plata International Film Festival.
