Join us for a special and rare screening of the Japanese drama The Little House (小さいおうち), based on the book by award-winning author Kyoko Nakajima 中島京子 who will be at the Q&A session at the end of the film screening.

Set in Japan in the 1930s and 1940s, the story introduces Taki Nunomiya, an elderly woman and former housemaid, looking back on her golden years. The narrative that follows delivers striking stories of love and human connections during a time of war, spanning from Yamagata to Tokyo. The film stars Haru Kuroki, who won the Silver Bear for Best Actress in this film at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. Directed by Yoji Yamada 山田洋次.

Presented in Japanese with English subtitles. RSVP is required.

Co-presented and generously supported by: Toronto International Festival of Authors, The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library at the University of Toronto Libraries, and The Japan Foundation, Toronto.
