ID Film Festival: CENTER PIECE FILM: Air Doll
The third annual ID Film Festival showcases films by Asian Pacific Islander (API) filmmakers for API filmmakers
by Hirokazu Koreeda
This screening is sponsored by the Japan Film Society
Middle-aged Hideo lives alone with an inflatable doll he calls Nozomi. The doll is his closest companion. He dresses it up, talks to it over dinner, and has sexual intercourse with it. However, unbeknownst to Hideo, Nozomi was created with a heart. After Hideo leaves for work each day, Nozomi dresses in her maid's outfit and explores the world outside their apartment with a sense of child-like wonder.
