Film Screening and Alumni Showcase!

Come join us for a screening of Song of a Dying Summer (逝く夏の歌), with subtitles by Japanese and Film Studies Programs alum Brandon Crisp!

Nippon Connection says about the film:

Natsu spends a last summer alongside his friends, Aki, Fuyu and Haru, while writing a stage play to commemorate their time together. Shot entirely on 8mm film, Kohei SENGEN’s feature-length debut, with its grainy images steeped in muted colors, creates an almost dreamlike atmosphere, conveying the melancholy of growing up – and growing apart.

(Kohei Sengen, Japan, Japanese w/ English subtitles, 71min, 2021, 8mm to DCP)
