The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme:
Happiness is A State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema
Filmmaker Nobutomo begins to notice gradual changes affecting her nonagenarian mother. Turning the camera on her parents’ life, she presents an intimate portrait of the highs and lows of a family living with Alzheimer’s and the reality of geriatric care in Japan’s super ageing society.
‘I Go Gaga, My Dear’ is part of the Japan Now Special Strand.
Organised by the Japan Foundation with Major Support from Japan Airlines, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, and Yakult, with Sponsorship in Kind from SUQQU and the Japan Centre, and in Cultural Partnership with Modern Culture.
