Red Persimmons

Manzan Benigaki

Japan, 2001
Documentary

Synopsis

The ostensible subject of this remarkably beautiful film is the growing, drying, peeling and packaging of persimmons in the tiny Japanese village of Kaminoyama. The film’s larger subject, however, is the disappearance of Japan’s traditional culture, the end of a centuries-old way of life.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
