One Night Two Threads
Emi Saito (Japan)
Col/ 24'22"/ In Japanese with English subtitles
Yijun is a Taiwanese woman who moved to Japan for her Japanese husband, but the two have been growing apart. One night, she storms out of the house and whilst roaming around Tokyo, happens to meet Aki who is also struggling with her life. They feel immediate connection without exchanging too many words. This profound encounter helps them step forward in their lives.
We would like to tell a story of ordinary women around us. We have met so many women who struggle in their lives, but they convert the struggle into fuel to move forward and they inspire people around them, which we think they are so beautiful. Our film is about beautiful and strong people and we would like to praise them.
