FILMstoryteller 25: “Rhapsody in August”
You are invited to the film screening FILMstoryteller 25: “Rhapsody in August” at Heritage Space.
FILMstoryteller 25: “Rhapsody in August”.
“Rhapsody in August” is one of three films directed by Akira Kurosawa in the last years of his life, when he turned 80. The view of the movie is the perspective from inside a family with their grandmother lives with the traces of memories of the atomic bombing incident in 1945 in Nagasaki. The war, the flow of time, and the traces of the past are simultaneously presented through inter-generational conversations in a family. These conversations are the connections that are slowly slipping away, an attempt to understand and listen to the echoes of the past.
Time: Saturday August 11 at 7:00 pm
Venue: Heritage Space, 1st floor, Dolphin Plaza, 28 Tran Binh or 06 Nguyen Hoang, My Dinh 2, Nam Tu Liem, Hanoi
