14 Up [electronic resource]: Japan

Expanding on the Up series produced in Great Britain, which starts with a group of seven-year-olds and revisits them every seven years, the Up: Japan chronicle focuses on 13 youth living in different parts of Japan. In this program, which captures the subjects at age 14, they are asked to talk about their lives, families, and future with the same honesty and frankness displayed in the original British production. Counteracting the percieved homogeneity of Japanese society, the circumstances of these young people are vastly different from each other. Some, such as Eri and Maki, live in politically sensitive areas like Okinawa, near a U.S. military base. Sanae lives near the disputed Kuril Islands, while others like Yoshio and Mitsukatsu carry the heritage of two different ancestral cu [...]

37 Stories About Leaving Home

Loading...
A fascinating and lyrical film about the lives of women, as daughters, mothers, and grandmothers, in contemporary Japan. It traces several two or three generation mother-daughter and grandmother-mother pairs talking singly about the events in their lives, and implicitly about the interactions among them. The women range in age from some near teenagers to women in their seventies talking about their lives as daughters around the turn of the century. The interviews are interwoven and given structure by a reading of a folktale. The film is visually and aurally stunning, as made images, black background, and archival footing are intercut with women talking and underlaid by a score which subtly sets a mood for each theme.

Adrift in Old Age [electronic resource]

Over 5 million senior citizens live by themselves in Japan. Now, the reality is that increasing numbers of them who need care are unable to live out their final days peacefully in one place. They're not permitted to stay in either hospitals or care facilities and end up drifting from place to place. There are some free or low-cost lodgings that were previously homeless shelters and psychiatric hospitals which will temporarily accept patients with dementia, but many seniors have lost any control over their own lives. This program depicts the reality of Japan's "drifting" seniors tossed by the winds of fate - a fate that could befall on anyone.

The Age of the Shoguns [electronic resource]: 1600-1868

This was the age of the Tokugawa family, the era of Edo, a period of over two-and-a-half centuries during which Japan was hermetically sealed off from the rest of the world and only a few Dutch and Chinese-constantly watched and treated like pariahs-were allowed to live on Japanese soil and to trade with the Japanese. This program treats the history of Japan during this period: the established classes of daimyo, samurai, farmer, and merchant; the political organization of the shogunate; the growth of the merchant class and the development of Kabuki; the delineation of Japanese sensibilities and the meaning of seppuku.
