Docpoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival

Programme (2020)

Yuki Kawamura (2020)

Japanese director and screenwriter Yuki Kawamura (b. 1979) visits DocPoint with NORIE, a delicate film drawing a picture of the director’s mother through letters and memories. The film continues the themes of Grandmother (2009) and Mirror of the Bride (2013), each film examining family relations facing the loss of a loved one. “When life lasts through memory, death becomes prologue and each generation responds in its own way to the questions raised by death and the emotions it arouses.”

Yuki Kawamura is in Helsinki from January 28 till January 31.
