THE WORKS AND DAYS (OF TAYOKO SHIOJIRI IN THE SHIOTANI BASIN)
C.W. WINTER, ANDERS EDSTRÖM United States, 2020
One of the best films of the year, The Works and Days may be long, but don’t let that put you off. An expansive immersion in the rural life of a Japanese woman, this poetic masterwork finds lyricism, serenity, and profundity in the everyday rituals of its own little corner of the universe.
