Screening of Survival Family サバイバルファミリー | Happiness Film Festival 2019
Director: Shinobu Yaguchi
2017 | Comedy, Drama | Japan | 117 mins | Japanese with English Subtitles | PG
This film is co-presented by Japan Creative Centre.
Residing in Tokyo, the Suzuki family is a dysfunctional family, where everyone is self-centred and absorbed in their own lives.
One morning, they wake and find out that all the electricity is off. They decide to go to work and school, but the trains and cars are also out of commission. Entire weeks passes, the situation remains unchanged, and their food supplies begin to dwindle.
With no option left, they head to Kagoshima on bicycles, but the journey brings trying times they tackle to make it through.
With the Internet, we are experiencing unprecedented connectivity. Yet, there seems to be a paradox - the more connected we are; the more disconnected we become, especially with people that matter. The post-screening dialogue explores this paradox.
