Sending Off, documentary film Japan Premier
Sep 7, 2019 at 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm￥1 – ￥31
The Japan premier of the documentary Sending Off directed by Ian Thomas Ash will take place in Tokyo on Saturday, September 7 at 14:30 on the opening day of the Pia Film Festival. Sending Off follows the patients of Dr. Kaoru Konta and her team of nurses as they provide hospice care to patients in their homes in rural Japan. A special focus is directed at the deepening relationships the patients form with their families as they reach the end of their lives. Sometimes difficult to watch, the film challenges us to think about how we live our own lives and how we would like to die. At the World Premier in Nippon Connection – Japanese Film Festival in Germany in May, Sending Off received the Audience Award for Best Documentary. The film will screen with ENGLISH subtitles.
