FREE PAAFF'14 Official Pre-Festival Screening "Pecoross' Mother and Her Days"
Sponsored by Alzheimer's Association

On Thursday August 14, PAAFF will be teaming up with Tidepoint Pictures and Free Library of Philadelphia to bring the Philadelphia Premiere of highly acclaimed Japanese film Pecoross' Mother and Her Days, a touching film about an elderly woman with dementia and her adult son who cares for her. Having won Best Film of 2013 by both Eiga Geijutsu and Kinema Junpo (Japanese equivalents of Hollywood Reporter and Variety), is a wonderful film that transcends language and cultural barriers with its universal message of family relations and end of life care. It also broke the record for film made by the oldest director in Japan with director Azumi Morisaki at age 86.

Full description of film:
Yuuichi Okano is a baby boomer born and raised in
Nagaski, Japan. His bald-head looks like a pecoross, a small onion. His mother Mitsue has dementia that began soon after her husband's death. The film depicts their daily life that is full of humor and sweet sorrow.
