KASAMAYAKI (MADE IN KASAMA)

ATTEND THE WORLD PREMIERE AT DOC NYC!
Shaken by the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters of 2011, a young woman returns to Kasama to make sense of her family’s troubled past. Meditative moments at the pottery wheel punctuated by tense conversations, sudden earthquakes, and radiation level readings, KASAMAYAKI exposes the bittersweet process of coming to terms with an imperfect life, and the healing power of creativity.
2011年に起きた東日本大震災。地震、津波、そして原発事故に心を揺さぶられた一人の若い女性。震災後、故郷である茨城県笠間市へ戻り、家族の辛い過去と向き合う決意をする。ろくろの前で流れるゆっくりとした時間。それを途切らせる緊迫した会話、突然の地震と放射能レベルの測定。映画「笠間焼」は不完全な人生を受け入れるほろ苦さとものづくりの癒しの力を描いていく。        DOWNLOAD PRESSKIT
