Hirokazu Kore-eda’s After Life screens

Aug. 12, 2022 at 7pm in-person

New York, August 2022—Japan Society is pleased to announce the upcoming Monthly Classics screening of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s After Life (1998).

In Kore-eda’s international breakthrough film, the recently deceased find themselves in a limbo-like realm where they must select a single cherished moment from their lives to be recreated on film for them to take into the next world. After Life’s high-concept premise is grounded in Kore‑eda’s documentary-like approach to the material, which he shaped through interviews with hundreds of Japanese citizens. What emerges is a panoramic vision of the human experience—its ephemeral joys and lingering regrets—and a quietly profound meditation on memory, our interconnectedness, and the amber-like power of cinema to freeze time.
