It’s our pleasure to announce a special screening of the APSA-winning Japanese drama An, from award-winning Japanese female director Naomi Kawase. The screening will take place on 11 May at Palace Barracks. Before the screening, we will share exciting details about the BAPFF 2016 program.
An was one of our favourites at last year’s festival. The story follows a stubborn pancake stall manager who finds himself confronted by an elderly woman looking for work. A taste of her homemade bean jelly convinces him to hire her, sparking bustling new business and a touching relationship that is about much more than just street food. Selected for Cannes and winner of the APSA award for Best Actress (Kirin Kiki), An is a delicate tale about life’s simple joys.
Get in fast! The first 10 bookings will WIN a double pass to a future BAPFF screening.
