THE LITTLE HOUSE

Directed by Yoji Yamada (2014) 134 minutes. Free admission, registration required

Presented in Japanese with English subtitles, followed by a moderated Q&A with the author.

Join us for a special and rare screening of the Japanese drama The Little House (小さいおうち), based on the book of the same name, by Kyoko Nakajima, and directed by Yoji Yamada. Set in Japan in the 1930s and 1940s, the story introduces Taki Nunomiya, an elderly woman and former housemaid, looking back on her golden years. The narrative that follows delivers striking stories of love and human connections during a time of war, spanning from Yamagata to Tokyo. The film stars Haru Kuroki, who won the Silver Bear for Best Actress in this film at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.

Co-presented and generously supported by:

Toronto International Festival of Authors, The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library at the University of Toronto Libraries and The Japan Foundation, Toronto.
