Haruneko
はるねこ (Haruneko)
EXPERIMENTAL SPOTLIGHT
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
Deep in the woods is a cafe that serves as a waystation for people who have determined, for whatever reason, to die. Here you’ll find The Manager (Keisuke Yamamoto) who, assisted by an elderly woman (Lily) and a young boy named Haru (Ryuto Iwata), will act as your host before taking you deeper into the forest where you dissolve into sound waves. In Sora Hokimoto’s enigmatic directorial debut, produced by industry veterans Shinji Aoyama and Takenori Sento, avant-garde aesthetics, theatrical artifice, music and humor mix to produce a spherical, tonal narrative reaching catharsis in movement and music on the border of life and death. Produced in the wake of the passing of his stage designer father and featuring a positively electric soundtrack, Haruneko is thoroughly alive.
International Premiere, 2017 International Film Festival Rotterdam: Bright Future Award Competition.
2016. 85 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Sora Hokimoto. With Keisuke Yamamoto, Ryuto Iwata, Minako Akatsuka, Min Tanaka, Llon Kawai.
