True Mothers Film Screening


February 24, 2021 - March 10, 2021

JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles is offering a special screening of Naomi Kawase’s film True Mothers, which has been selected to represent Japan for 2021 Oscar consideration in the International Film category. This is only the third time in 67 submissions that Japan has chosen a film directed by a woman to represent the country. The critically acclaimed film first premiered at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival.

True Mothers, adapted from the novel by Mizuki Tsujimura, is a compelling story with unexpected twists about adoption and motherhood. Set in modern-day Tokyo, a couple who is unable to conceive a child after struggling with infertility is presented with an alternative option.
