Leaving on the 15th Spring
旅立ちの島唄 十五の春
(YOSHIDA Yasuhiro 吉田康弘 /2013/114 min)

Yuna lives on a secluded island from which students must depart upon graduation from junior high in order to continue their education. Though excited about the prospect of life away from her small but tight-knit community, she feels unease over leaving her father all alone. As the big day approaches, Yuna becomes increasingly aware of rifts in her own family’s relationships.

Director Yasuhiro Yoshida has worked closely with the locals of Minamidaito to craft a sensitive and poignant impression of a young girl on the cusp of adulthood, torn between the alternately attractive and conflicting natures of tradition and progress.
