Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s film full of contemplation and compassion furthers his career’s comparisons to Yasujiro Ozu. On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.

Co-sponsored by the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies.
