aCinema presents Retour featuring works by Esther Wellejus and Akio Yuguchi

You Are Still Somebody’s Someone (2017)

Esther Wellejus, 24 min, video

Synopsis:
You Are Still Somebody's Someone is a documentary from a daughter to her father. A film on the blurry paths of memory and the love for the person behind the diagnosis. 

In a dreamy realm of nature and with an abstract use of archival footage You Are Still Somebody’s Someone takes us on a journey of the sensing and discovery of memory of a now estranged relation.

 

keru Hito (2018)

Akio Yuguchi, 20 min, video

Synopsis:
The blue forests of Aokage have got the blues. Only one child lives in the village, revealing the demographic imbalance in the community, and the legendary statue of the little buddha, silently but amiably, characterizes the dilemma about the future existence of Aokage.
