Rei no Tsui

North American Premiere. Hikari (Takara Suzuki) lives and works in Tokyo. Unhappy in the big city, she can’t find meaning in her existence until she meets Masato (writer/director/producer/editor/actor Toshihiko Tanaka), a photographer from far off Hokkaido. This connection leads to an adventure, loneliness, dependency and a destructive love affair. Toshihiko Tanaka’s directorial debut couples powerful views of Hokkaido’s vast landscapes with the staggering internal mindscapes of our most intimate joys and fears.

Dir. Toshihiko Tanaka, 2024, 190 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Takara Suzuki, Maeko Oyama, Shogo Moriyama, Toshihiko Tanaka.
