As a preview for the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020, the Japan Foundation is delighted to present a special screening of the film Every Day A Good Day (2018), directed by OMORI Tatsushi.

 

About the film

From the director of The Ravine of Goodbye (2013) and starring KIRIN Kiki (Shoplifters, 2018).

At the recommendation of her mother, 20-year-old Noriko (KUROKI Haru) and her cousin Michiko (TABE Mikako) start taking tea ceremony lessons with Takeda (KIRIN), who has a reputation for being an extraordinary teacher. At first, Noriko is confused by the intricate rules, but after two years she comes to realize the profundity of tea ceremony.
