A filmmaker’s personal journey to reconnect with her sister, a successful potter living in the ruins of Fukushima is interlocked with her spiritual quest of bridging East and West, feminine and masculine, shadow and light.

 

As part of the Cinéastes cœur à cœur series, we have invited Kyoka Tsukamoto to select one of her favourite films from the contemporary Canadian cinema repertoire. She has chosen Jacquelyn Mills’ IN THE WAVES which will be presented on Sunday, March 20 at 6:30PM. This screening will be followed by a discussion between the two filmmakers.
