‘I think you already understand the situation, but I need to inform you officially. Tatara Kimiko, you died yesterday. I’m very sorry for your loss.’ Takashi Mochizuki in After Life.
After Life (titled Wonderful Life in Japan) was released in 1998. Set in what appears to be an old government building where souls are processed before entering the afterlife, the film examines the lives of a group of recently-deceased people who are asked to select a single happy memory from their past. After Life has won numerous awards at international film festivals including Best Film and Best Screenplay at the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema.
After the screening of the film participants will use the film as a springboard for our conversation; participant questions, responses and ideas are welcomed to help navigate the challenges of the work. the discussion will be led by Malcolm Rushton. There is no expectation of previous study or work with the film.
