New York premiere.
2001, 122 min., 35mm. Directed by Isao Yukisada. Based on the novel by Kazuki Kaneshiro. With Yosuke Kubozuka, Ko Shibasaki, Shinobu Otake and Tsutomu Yamazaki. Distributed by Toei.
The most talked about film of 2001 and the Japanese entry to the Academy Award foreign language category, Isao Yukisada’s Go features the dashingly handsome Yosuke Kubozuka as a third-generation Korean-Japanese boy. Hip, upbeat and refreshing, the film explores the boy’s search for identity through conflict with his father, his resistance against the Korean ethnic school and his romance with a Japanese girl.
