YesAsia Editorial Description

One of Japan's leading female directors, Kawase Naomi first came to international attention in 1997 when she became the youngest winner of the Cannes Caméra d'Or with her debut feature Moe no Suzaku. Ten years later, she won the Grand Prix at the 30th Cannes Film Festival with her acclaimed film The Mourning Forest. Though better known for her full-length narrative films, Kawase has spent most of her filmmaking career working with documentaries, often of an autobiographical nature. Continuously pointing the camera at her own life, she has turned her relentless search for self into compelling film, from her attempts to understand the father who abandoned her as a child (Embracing, Sky, Wind, Fire, Water, Earth) to essays about the grandmother who raised her (Katatsumori). Kawase is equally adept at observing others as evident in Letter from a Yellow Cherry Blossom, an intimate portrait of the final days of photo critic and editor Kazuo Nishii, and The Wield which follows groups of elderly people living in the mountains of Nara. This Kawase Naomi documentary boxset is a rare opportunity to see eight of her documentaries, including early works that have never been theatrically released.

This boxset comes with:

  • Embracing (1992) (40min)
  • Katatsumori (1994) (40min)
  • See Heaven (1995) (10min)
  • Hi-Wa-Katabuki (1996) (45min)
  • The Weald (1997) (73min)
  • Manguekyo (English Subtitled) (1999) (90min)
  • Sky, Wind, Fire, Water, Earth (2001) (55min)
  • Letter from a Yellow Cherry Blossom (2002) (65min)
  • Special Features (Interview with Kawase Naomi, Discussion)
