Charity Screening Of ‘Mitsuko Delivers’

 

On March 11th, 2012, exactly a year after the earthquake which caused so much damage to Japan, Third Window Films will be hosting a charity screening of 'Mitsuko Delivers' at the ICA. 100% of all profits from the screening and DVD sales at the event will go to a Fukushima-based charity.

Synopsis

Electrifying Japanese talent Yûya Ishii’s ('A Man With Style') breathless new comedy tells the story of a thirtysomething woman (Riisa Naka, 'Summer Wars') who’s at a delicate juncture in life; alone, flat broke and to top it all nine-months pregnant. Her folks think she’s in California living the high life with her baby’s GI father. In fact she’s in Tokyo, searching for a purpose, and eventually finding one in the ramshackle working-class alley where she grew up. The place reeks of destitution and bone idleness, but Mitsuko’s infectious get-up-and-go attitude soon compels the locals to roll up their sleeves and restore the alley to its former glory.

You can check out the trailer for the movie below, and tickets are available now from www.ica.org.uk and www.thirdwindowfilms.com.
