The Weekend Japanese Film Show (April 2021)

Start Date: 17/4/2021 - End Date: 17/4/2021 ::: Organized By JFKL

Passage of Life (僕の帰る場所)

(FUJIMOTO Akio  藤元明緒 / 2017 / 99 min / P13)

Cast: Kaung Myat Thu, Khin Myat Thu, Issace, Htet Myat Naing, KITAGAWA Yuki, KUROMIYA Niina, TSUDA Kanji

Director & Screenplay: FUJIMOTO Akio
Cinematographer: KISHI Kentaro
Producer: WATANABE Kazutaka, YOSHIDA Fumito


Khin, mother of two young boys, lives in a small apartment in Tokyo. She supports her family when her husband, Issace, is caught by the immigration bureau. She pours her heart and soul into her two boys, raising them in the unfamiliar language of their resident country, even as they fight day in and day out due to the stress of not being able to see their father. In a world of uncertainty, she begins to long for her homeland? A tale woven from the theme of ?immigration,? an issue of interest to countries around the world, with the democratization of Burma and foreign families on Japanese soil in the background. Performed by a roster of mostly first-time Burmese actors making their film debuts, the film is depicted with such realism that it feels like a documentary, striking the viewer with its severe gaze while depicting the family with real tenderness.
